Shubhangi Swaroop: Indian Navy's first woman pilot

In a historic moment, the Indian Navy inducted Shubhangi Swaroop as its first-ever woman pilot. Shubhangi and three other women officers were among the 328 midshipmen and cadets who had passed out of the Ezhimala Naval Academy in Kerala on Wednesday.

While Shubhangi, a native of Uttar Pradesh, will soon be flying Maritime Reconnaissance aircraft, the three other women cadets are also all set to become a part of the Naval Armament Inspectorate (NAI), where no female officer has ever worked. The NAI branch looks after the inspection and assessment of the arms and weapons of the country’s naval force.
