Indian Navy Created Naval History: The Indian Navy has established another record in its name. Along with this, the increasing participation of women in the Navy and their courage is being praised all over. In the last few years, the enthusiasm of women in all the three wings of the army is worth seeing. Women are marching shoulder to shoulder with the men in the army.
Now the Indian Navy has created history by completing an independent maritime surveillance mission over the Arabian Sea led by all women officers in Dornier 228 aircraft. Only women officers participated in this mission and by successfully completing it, they managed to set a new record in the history of the Navy.
Team of five women officers created history
This mission was carried out by five officers of Indian Naval Air Squadron 314 based at the Naval Air Enclave of Porbandar in Gujarat. Officials said that the aircraft was captained by Mission Commander Lt. Commander Aanchal Sharma. Apart from this, his team also included SLT Pooja Shekhawat including pilots Lt Shivangi and Lt Apoorva Geete and tactical and sensor officer, Lt Pooja Panda.
INAS 314 is a frontline naval air squadron based at Porbandar, Gujarat and operates state-of-the-art Dornier 228 maritime reconnaissance aircraft. The squadron is commanded by Commander SK Goel, a qualified Navigation Instructor.
Months of ground training and extensive mission briefings
The official said the women officers had to undergo months of ground training and extensive mission briefings for this historic flight. Indian Navy spokesperson Commander Vivek Madhwal said that the Indian Navy has been at the forefront of transforming the armed forces. “This was the first military flight mission of its kind. However, this mission was unique and is expected to pave the way for women officers to assume greater responsibility and aspire for more challenging roles,” he said.
Let us tell you that earlier in the year 2018, the all-women Indian Navy crew aboard INSV Tarini achieved the historic feat by successfully circumnavigating the world for eight months.
