Shaliza is From Ludhiana , Punjab . SInce Childhood She Dreamt about Becoming a Pilot .

In 1994 Women were inducted into Air Force , but those were Non combating One , but In july 2018 , IAF had decided to induct Woman into Fighter Pilots . The first batch of IAF female combat pilots are already in service. Since then, women have begun to pave their way to join the Indian military forces. However, at present the number of female officers are still very minimal compared to male soldiers, especially in air force units.

Dhami’s life is all about training cadets and trainee army officers till they are competent enough to take their first independent sorties. “I still remember that day at the academy in Hyderabad in 2003 when I took my first solo flight on the HPT-32 Deepak, a basic trainer aircraft. It was at the downwind when I turned to ask my instructor to do a check, and realised that I was entirely by myself. It was an indescribable feeling. I felt confident—and I felt grateful,” she says. By now, flying a chopper comes more naturally to Dhami than driving a car. “At least nobody comes in my way,” she laughs.

Dhami’s greatest learning from her career has been an ability to trust. “Believing in the people you work with is critical. I fly an aircraft that my ground crew signs and certifies. I fly it in good faith. This is not seen very commonly in the civil world,” she says. “My instructors gave me their best. My achievement isn’t purely my own. I am duty-bound to disseminate all I know till the last moment.”
