Pawan Hans encourages female aviators by organising the “Girls in Aviation India” event

The team at Pawan Hans Limited (PHL) recently organised an event with the theme “Girls in Aviation India” featuring Captain Ashima Mendiratta, India’s youngest female multi-engine helicopter pilot.

Women have played a significant part in society’s advancement since the dawn of time. They are breaking the glass ceiling by contributing significantly today in the Indian aviation industry as well.

The purpose of the event was to close the gender gap in the workforce by encouraging more women to work in aviation. It also placed a strong emphasis on fostering a visionary goal that would see the proportion of women in aviation rise from 15% to 50% shortly.

The event’s keynote speaker, Captain Ashima Mendiratta, emphasised the value of women in aviation, emphasised the changing role of women, and urged female students to pursue careers in the aviation sector and its related fields.

The event was held at the Government Senior Sec. School in Mandi, Himachal Pradesh on September 9, 2022, and was sponsored by Pawan Hans Limited (PHL) and Women in Aviation (an NGO whose mission is to inspire women to pursue challenging and rewarding careers in aviation).

For advancing and assisting women in a variety of aviation-related verticals, Pawan Hans is the industry pioneer. The largest helicopter operator in India has the highest proportion of female employees in the Indian helicopter industry, with 4 helicopter pilots, 3 aircraft maintenance engineers, and 12 technicians.
