Never Be Afraid To Pursue Your Dreams: Navy's First Woman Pilot

Sub-Lieutenant Shivangi on Monday became the first women pilot in the Indian Navy as she joined operational duties at the naval base in Kerala's Kochi. She will be flying the Dornier surveillance aircraft.

Shivangi was born in the city of Muzaffarpur in Bihar.

I have been craving for this for a long time. It's a great feeling.

Sub Lieutenant Shivangi takes a walk about a white Dornier 228 twin-turboprop aircraft of the India Navy during a mandatory pre-flight check.

Shivangi was commissioned into the Navy past year after her initial training, the report added. "Best wishes to her for a successful career".

She was one of the three officers of the 7th Dornier Conversion Course (DOCC) who qualified as pilots and got their golden "Wings" at a ceremony held at INS Garuda on Monday.

By December-end, two more women pilots of the Navy, Sub Lt. Shubhangi and Sub Lt. Divya will also get their wings at Yelahanka where they trained with the Air Force. Operational training will begin.

She was commissioned into the Navy in June a year ago. From here on, these pilots will join the Dornier Operational Flying Training course at INAS 550 from mid-January 2020, prior to joining an operational Maritime Reconnaissance squadron.
