Ayesha Farooq, 26, Pakistan’s only female war-ready fighter pilot, poses for photograph as she sits in the cockpit of a Chinese-made F-7PG fighter jet at Mushaf base in Sargodha, north Pakistan June 6, 2013. Farooq, from Punjab province’s historic city of Bahawalpur, is one of 19 women who have become pilots in the Pakistan Air Force over the last decade – there are five other female fighter pilots, but they have yet to take the final tests to qualify for combat.
This is a good news that women are also interested to join Army. 316 Women are now in Air Force and 4000 are in other forces. Like developed countries now also in Pakistan women are working in different fields.
As one of the most powerful air forces in the region, Pakistan Air Force (PAF) has seen many changes throughout its seven-decade history. Just as different and diverse are the many people who have made PAF into what it is today, including the first female pilot of PAF, who was an inspiration to all women around the world at that time.
