Another Glass Ceiling set to he broken!!02 lady officers, Sub Lt Kumudini Tyagi & Slt Riti Singh selected for operating as "Observers" (Tactical offrs) in the helicopter stream @indiannavy, paving way for women air combatants operating from frontline warships#HarKaamDeshKeNaam pic.twitter.com/1r4h3Zckox
A News18 report quoted Indian Navy spokesperson Commander Vivek Madhwal as saying: “They would in effect be the first set of women airborne combatants who would be operating from warships. Earlier, entry of women was restricted to the fixed wing aircraft that took off and landed ashore.”
The report added that Indian Navy officers Tyagi and Singh are among 17 officers who were honoured with 'Wings' upon graduating as Observers at a ceremony held on September 21 at INS Garuda, Kochi. Four other women officers and three officers of the Indian Coast Guard unit – including 13 officers of regular batch and four women officers of the Short Service Commission batch – were also awarded wings.
Rear Admiral Antony George NM, VSM, Chief Staff Officer (Training), presented the awards and wings to the graduating officers. He also lauded the landmark occasion as a historic first. George highlighted that women officers being trained in helicopter operations would pave the way for more women deployed on frontline warships.
The development comes on a day when it has been learned that the Indian Air Force (IAF) has also shortlisted a woman fighter pilot for the newly acquired Rafale fighter jets.
