womenpilotzambia"Zambia has first female fighter pilot 24-year-old Second Lieutenant Thokozile Muwamba has made history in Zambia as the country's first female fighter pilot to be accepted into the male dominated area of the military. After joining the military in 2012, Muwamba was fortunate to be part of the Zambian Air Forces program to train female pilots who will bridge the gender gap in the field. Africa has only a few female pilots especially in the Air Force.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) has, for the first time, hired women to fly its planes. Two of them joined last August during the last intake of cadet pilots. Their training - in Singapore and Australia - will take between two and three years, after which they will be rostered for commercial flights.SIA spokesman Nicholas Ionides confirmed the hiring but said no target has been set for the number of women pilots to be hired. The airline has about 2,000 pilots. SIA is the last Singapore passenger carrier - and quite possibly major global airline - to hire women pilots. Among Singapore carriers, women pilots make up less than 1 per cent of the total pilot population, with SIA currently at 0.1 per cent. This is lower than the global figure of about 5 per cent of pilots, according to the International Society of Women Airline Pilots..
