Indian Army to induct women pilots in Army Aviation Corps

Indian Army to induct women pilots in Army Aviation Corps



The Indian Army has decided to induct women as pilots in its aviation wing and the first batch is likely to be admitted for training in 2021. Currently, women are allowed only in air traffic control and ground duties in the Army aviation wing. The Adjutant General’s branch, the Military Secretary branch, and the Aviation Directorate have arrived at a consensus that women officers can be there in the flying branch for flying duties. 

The next course will start in July and women officers will definitely be admitted into it for pilot training. After one year’s training, they will be able to join frontline operations units for flying duties. Last year, the Navy announced deploying its first batch of women pilots on the Dornier maritime aircraft. Women pilots would be flying helicopters to forward locations and be part of operations at the borders, the Army Chief said, adding that the proposal has been cleared. The Indian Army raised the Army Aviation Corps on November 1, 1986, and it comprises helicopters that fly in conflict and peace zones.

The Aviation Corps is critical for the Indian Army as it is pressed into action for the evacuation of injured troops during operations or health emergencies in high altitude areas. Army Aviation Corps choppers are also used for reconnaissance, observation, casualty evacuation, essential load drops, and combat search and rescue.
