Pakistan’s first women fighter pilots

The BBC reports:

Pakistan’s first women fighter pilots

The Pakistan Air Force (PAF) academy has been all-male for more than 55 years - but now it is going through major change. Women are now allowed to enroll on its aerospace engineering and fighter pilot programmers and are doing rather well.

When the current batch passes out in a year these cadets will become the first-ever women fighter pilots in Pakistan’s history.

Diversity is the key to progress. Participation of women in technology arenas has always been very low in Pakistan. What other technology related areas are Pakistani women having an impact on?

[ed] Malaysia is another Muslim country that has female airforce pilots.
