More female pilots in India than in America

Airlines help fight employee shortages, it’s an example for the world

India has overtaken America, considered the richest country in the world, in terms of the number of female pilots flying planes. According to the International Society of Women Airline Pilots, India has the highest percentage of female pilots in the world.
12.4% of all female pilots are in India. The United States, the largest aviation market in the world, accounts for 5.5% of female pilots and 4.7% of the United Kingdom. According to a Bloomberg report, hiring more women could help airlines overcome the workforce.
The Boeing Company estimates that the world will need more than 6 million new pilots over the next two decades. Explain that the performance of female pilots is also better. Some studies also show that female pilots have fewer safety incidents. Hiring more women could help airlines deal with staff shortages that are disrupting travel.
Today, India may be an example for the world in the case of female pilots, but three decades later, that was not the situation. For example, in 1989, Indian Nivedita Bhasin became the world’s youngest commercial airline captain. Bhasin says that when she became a pilot, the crew would ask her to get to the cockpit as soon as possible so that the passengers wouldn’t know that their plane was being piloted by a female pilot and they would panic when they saw that.
Prominent pilots and people like Nivedita Bhasin say that awareness programs for better company policies and strong family support, Indian women are encouraged. Many Indian women were drafted to fly in a National Cadet Corps air wing formed in 1948.
Thanks to this, students are trained in the operation of microlight aircraft. Some state governments provide grants to make expensive commercial pilot training more accessible to women. Companies like Honda Motor provide full scholarships for 18-month courses at an Indian flight school and help them find jobs. In addition, there are many special training programs.
