Flying cadets Bhawana Kanth, Mohana Singh and Avani Chaturvedi are all set to register their names in history as they are become the country’s first female fighter pilots to be commissioned into Indian Air Force (IAF) today.

The three belongs to the first batch of Women Flight Cadets undergoing training for commissioning in the Fighter Stream of IAF Flying Branch. They are currently undergoing Stage-II training on Kiran Intermediate Jet Trainers at Hakimpet Air Force station in Hyderabad, from where they are going pass out today. The women will then begin stage-III advanced training on British Hawk advanced jet trainers before they can fly supersonic warplanes. However, there is a possibility of rejection at the last stage too, as reported by Hindustan Times.

The government of India had decided to open the fighter stream for women on an experimental basis for five years. Though, the headcount of women in the air force is 1,300. But combat roles were not assigned to them until now.

It is a dream come true for the three cadets and every other woman, who aspire to see themselves in the cockpits of fighter jets.
