Two women officers have been selected to join as “Observers” (Airborne Tacticians) in the helicopter stream of the Indian Navy for the first time in the history of Indian naval aviation. The selected women officers would be the first set of women airborne combatants who would be operating from warships.
The occasion is a historic occasion as for the first-time women are going to be trained in helicopter operations. This step will pave way for the deployment of women in frontline warships of the Indian Navy. This would further end the associated gender stigma by empowering women.
