Sub-lieutenant Shivangi became the first woman pilot for the Indian Navy on Monday. Born in Muzaffarpur, Bihar, Shivangi is the daughter of a school principal and a homemaker.



 

Sub Lt Shivangi will be flying the Dornier surveillance aircraft of the Indian Navy. The Defence spokesperson in Kochi tweeted: “Sub Lt Shivangi makes history as she earns her golden wings from Commander-in-Chief Southern Naval Command Vice Adm AK Chawla to become the first naval pilot as part of the graduating class of 7th Dornier conversion course today”.



 

She was commissioned in the Indian Navy in June last year. She underwent six months of rigorous training at the Air Force Academy (AFA) Dundigal where she was trained on the Pilatus PC-7 aircraft of the Indian Air Force (IAF).



 

"I have been craving for this for a very long time & finally the day is here. It's a great feeling. I am looking forward to completing my 3rd stage of training," Sub Lieutenant Shivangi said.
