Indian Navy operationalises first batch of 3 women pilots

Indian Navy operationalises first batch of 3 women pilots

New Delhi, Oct 22 (UNI) The Indian Navy's first batch of women pilots have been operationalised on Dornier aircraft by the Southern Naval Command (SNC) at Kochi.
The three women pilots were part of the six pilots of the 27th Dornier Operational Flying Training (DOFT) course, who graduated as 'Fully operational Maritime Reconnaissance (MR) Pilots' at a passing out ceremony, held at INS Garuda, Kochi on October 22, an Indian Navy spokesperson said.
SNC Chief Staff Officer (Training) Rear Admiral Antony George presented awards to the pilots, who are now fully qualified on Dornier aircraft for all operational missions.
The three women pilots of first batch are Lieutenant Divya Sharma (from Malviya Nagar, New Delhi), Lieutenant Shubhangi Swaroop (from Tilhar, Uttar Pradesh) and Lieutenant Shivangi (from Muzaffarpur, Bihar).
These officers had initially undergone basic flying training, partly with the Indian Air Force and partly with the Navy, prior to the DOFT course.
Among the three women pilots operationalised for MR flying, Lt Shivangi was the first to qualify as a Naval pilot on December 2019.
The course comprised of one month of ground training phase, which was conducted at various professional schools of SNC and eight months of flying training at the Dornier Squadron of SNC, INAS 550.
Lt Divya Sharma and Lt Shivam Pandey were adjudged ‘First in Flying’ and ‘First in Ground’ subjects, respectively. The Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief (South) rolling trophy in memory of late Lt Simon George Pynomootil for the ‘Most spirited trainee’ was presented to Lt Kumar Vikram.
This trophy was instituted on June 18, 2019 during the Diamond Jubilee Celebration of INAS 550, to immortalise the spirit of the officer, who was a qualified Islander pilot and lost his life in a fatal air crash, while serving the squadron on May 17, 1985.
