Have you ever wondered why there are so few female airline pilots? According to the International Society of Women Airline Pilots, only 5% of all certified airline pilots around the world are females. Among all countries in the world, India has the highest percentage of female pilots with 12.7%.
For many female cadets, there are many hurdles in their journey to become an airline pilot. One of the main challenges facing aspiring female pilots are our own societal preconceptions towards a piloting career.
“Women must try to do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be but a challenge to others” – Amelia Earhart, the First Female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.
Due to continuous efforts to reduce the gender disparity in the cockpit, the rate of female pilots joining airlines is growing slowly. Many organisations, including Women in Aviation, are recognising the issue and creating mentoring courses to encourage women to become pilots.
While the percentage of female pilots in Malaysia is small, there are still many motivated female cadets enrolled at Skyvax Aerospace Training willing to chase their dreams to fly. Currently, the percentage of female cadets attending our Pilot Training Program is at 9%, higher than the current rate in the airline industry. We will continue to encourage our inspiring female cadets.
Skyvax Aerospace Training will continue to help our cadets chase their ambitions to become a World Class pilot. Our 12.12 Bonanza provides a discounted price for our Pilot Training Programs where you can save up to RM 15,000.
