Shubhangi Swaroop creates HISTORY, becomes FIRST Female Pilot in the Indian Navy.
"After completing her BTech in biotechnology, she was eager to join the defence forces. A national gold medallist in taekwondo and a passionate diver, she always dreamt of becoming part of the defence forces," said her father Naval commander Gyan Swaroop to the Deccan Chronicle.
Her younger brother Shubham Swaroop is currently studying BSc Economics at University of London international programme and her mother is a secondary school teacher at Navy Children School, Visakhapatnam, stated the leading daily.
For Shubhangi its a dream come true on being selected as a pilot. Though Shubhangi is the first Naval woman pilot, the Navy's Aviation branch has had women officers operating as air traffic control officers and as 'observers' in the aircraft who are responsible for communication and weapons, Southern Naval spokesperson Commander Sreedhar Warrier told PTI.
