Women of Pakistan are chasing new heights every now and then. Young Pakistani women are passionate, hardworking, independent and smart. They are eager to break all stereotypes and step forward to compete with the world. Aimen Amir – First Female Pilot from Skardu, is one such example.
Hailing from Skardu, a small town in Gilgit, Aimen Amir is the first female in her town to obtain the flying license. This smart pilot is only 20 years old. She just cleared her intermediate examination and after a rigorous training, she got her flying license.
Aimen is the third female pilot from Gilgit – Baltistan region. The other two are from Hunza.
The Strive for the Flying License
Aimen got her flying license from Rawalpindi Flying Club.
Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority first issues a student pilot license to the eligible candidates. After successful completion of training period and mandatory examination, the authority issues a private pilot license.
As part of her initial progression, Aimen first received ground training. It helped her sharpen her skills in direction, telecommunication, planning and determining weather conditions. She then completed the mandatory 50 hour flight exercise. The course spans over a duration of 6 months.
