SHILLONG, April 7: Meghalaya’s first and only commercial pilot, Ruth West Kharkongor, has congratulated Kashmir’s Ayesha Aziz after she received her commercial pilot license saying her achievement as a woman could inspire a lot many others from remote corners of the country to dream big.
“I congratulate Aziz for her feat. Her achievement will surely inspire a lot other young women from remote corners of the country to dare dream big and fly,” Ruth, who is a commercial pilot license holder in the USA, told newsmen
“I am happy that we as young women hailing from remote corners of the country are able to do this. I hope to meet and probably fly with Aziz later on in life,” she said.
Aziz got her license last week from the Civil Aviation Department while Ruth was granted her license by the United State’s Federal Aviation Administration in December last year.
Ruth will have to appear for another exam in India before she could fly in the country as per the guidelines of the Directorate of Civil Aviation here.
