Bhawana Kanth, Avani Chaturvedi & Mohana Singh are currently training at the IAF academy near Hyderabad, in the second phase of a three stage training program. These Daughters Of India are training to become first Indian women fighter pilots and will be inducted as first Indian women fighter pilots in the Indian Air Force.

They are currently at the IAF academy near Hyderabad, in the second phase of a three stage training programme. They have completed stage-I training on the Swiss Pilatus PC-7 turboprop aircraft and are now flying the Kiran Mark-II aircraft.
