The Indian Navy had inducted there three women pilots in the 27th Dornier Operational Flying Training Course (DOFT). Finally, they have graduated as “Fully operational Maritime Reconnaissance MR Pilots” at a passing out ceremony conducted at INS Garuda in Kochi last Thursday.

Rear Admiral Antony George, Chief Staff Officer of Southern Naval Command presented awards to the pilots who are now fully qualified on Dornier aircraft for all operational missions of the Indian Navy.

Lieutenant Divya Sharma hails from New Delhi, whereas, Lieutenant Shubhangi Swaroop from Uttar Pradesh and Shivangi from Bihar are the three women pilots of the first batch. They had initially undergone basic flying training partly with Indian Air Force and partly with the Navy prior to DOFT course. Amongst the three women pilots operationalized for MR flying, Lt Shivangi was the first to qualify as a naval pilot on 02 Dec 2019.

We would like to congratulate all the three Pilots for their heroic achievement, and we are sure these Pilots will be considered as an inspiration by all.
