6. Harita Kaur Deol- First Indian woman airforce pilot 



Flight Cadet Harita Kaur Deol made history in September 1994 when she became the first Indian woman to do a solo flight in an Avro aircraft.



It was a momentous occasion for the 5 feet 2 inch woman in the Indian Air Force. Originally hailing from Chandigarh, she achieved this feat at  the age of 22 .

In 1992, IAF advertised for the first time 8 vacancies for women pilots. She became the first to accomplish this feat among the 7 other cadets.
