India’s first three women fighter pilots have been advised by the IAF to restrain from motherhood for the next four years so as not to adversely impact their ongoing training process.
Indian air force sources clarified that the advisory is not legal binding and is to ensure that their training does not get affected. The three women . Bhawana Kanth, Mohana Singh and Avani Chaturvedi are the trainees who qualified for the fighter stream after it was thrown open to women in October 2015. These pilots will be commissioned into the fighter stream on June 18 this year after successful completion of the initial training. Thereafter, they would undergo advanced training for one year and would enter a fighter cockpit by June 2017.
Continuous training is required for a minimum of five years for fighter pilots, men or women, to become combat ready.
Even young fighter pilots are advised not to think about marriage till a particular age.
