Indian Air Force flying officer Avani Chaturvedi lands a new record (“Indian pilot Avani Chaturvedi lands new record”, Gulf News, February 23). Chaturvedi was the first Indian woman to fly a sortie – the first step to taking charge as a fighter pilot, and this was good news. It shows that women are capable of handling any profession with interest and dedication. Her 30 minutes trip made a good impression on her instructor and this added to her professionalism. On the coming International Women’s Day, Chaturvedi makes a laudable record. I offer my congratulations to her.
