First time ever India will witness women fighter pilots taking a lead to become single sortie.

After becoming the first batch to he admitted as women fighter pilots into the Indian Air Force ( IAF), the powerful trio of Avani Chaturvedi, Bhawana Kanth and Mohana Singh are all set to take off in IAF's MIG-21 ''Bison'', the supersonic aircraft. 
The trio has completed solo sorties in Pilatus PC-7 turbocops, Kiran and Hawk jet trainers and will now undergo training to fly the IAF's highly-demanding Bisons. The IAF has shown no leniency in training the women officers by being biased towards the fairer sex. 
‎The training will include the entire process from air-to-air and air-to-ground combat. The officers will also be trained for night flying and combat operations which has two parts - "moon phase" and the "dark phase".
This will be a moment of pride for India to witness the first trio of women who are ready to take their positions and fly high breaking the tradition of only male fighter pilots.
