Women Fighter Pilots. Maybe…But No Kids, says IAF

In India on November 18, 2009 at 7:22 am

India’s first female President Pratibha Patil will fly in a Sukhoi 30MKi combat jet on November 25. She is after all India’s Supreme commander.

As for women fighter pilots in the Indian Air Force. Nope…not happening. Reasons include – they could get pregnant and India doesn’t have a response policy on if they are taken prisoner.

So there you have it – a woman supreme commander who commands combat forces that cannot include women because they might get preggers.

The IAF may want to be reintroduced to Rukhsana Kausar.

Meanwhile, though the US has allowed female combat pilots since 1994, but has had its fair share of controversies.
