Women To Fly Indian Air Force Fighter Jets

The Indian Air Force (IAF) is now planning to induct women into the fighter aircraft stream, IAF Chief Arup Raha said on Thursday (October 8). “We have women pilots flying transport aircraft and helicopters. We are now planning to induct them into the fighter stream to meet the aspirations of young women in India,” Air Chief Marshal Raha said in Hindon as IAF celebrated its 83rd anniversary. The plan to induct women into a fighting arm is a first in the three services which were earlier not open to the idea of women taking part in combat role. IAF currently has women in seven areas of administration, logistics, meteorology, navigation, education, aeronautical engineering — mechanical and electrical — and accounts.
