Ayesha Aziz of Jammu and Kashmir has now become India’s youngest pilot. She has achieved this success only at the age of 25.
Ayesha also acquired the pilot’s license at the age of 15 years old which was also the record for being the youngest ever. She has trained to fly a MiG-29 at The Sokol airbase in Russia. Ayesha then acquired a graduation degree in aviation from Bombay Flying Club and got a commercial pilot’s license in 2017.
Speaking to ANI, Ayesha said, “I think Kashmiri women are doing very well, especially in education. Every other woman in Kashmir is doing her Masters or her doctorate. People of the Valley are doing great.”
“In this profession, one’s mental state should be very strong because you’ll be carrying 200 passengers and it is a great responsibility,” Ayesha added.
Ayesha Aziz thanked her parents, who understood her and supported her in achieving her dreams. Speaking to ANI, she said called her father the greatest role model and added that without her parents she wouldn’t have been able to achieve so much in life.
