It can be only when you spread your wings that you’re able to fly significant towards your dreams. 

When other young ones of her age ended up pursuing regular professions like engineering and drugs, Anny Divya informed her dad and mom that she wished to turn into a pilot. Contrary to most people today from smaller sized towns with a conservative mind-set towards their daughters, Anny’s dad and mom supported her at each step.  

Today, 30-calendar year-previous Captain Anny Divya is the youngest girl commander ever to fly a Boeing 777.



Born in Pathankot to an army person, Anny desired to be a pilot ever since she was a little kid. Her family members shifted to Vijaywada after her father took voluntary retirement. When Anny turned 17 in her 12th standard, she bought through Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Akademi (IGRUA), the pilot instruction institute in Uttar Pradesh, and the family members took a bank loan to fund the program. 

But the journey from a modest city to a pilot’s instruction academy wasn’t an quick one particular for the teen who was often mocked by her friends for her very poor English. 

She informed Hindustan Occasions

“The cultural alter from a modest city to a massive city was too much to handle for me. I had difficulty adjusting and talking English. Folks used to mock me for my very poor English and that harm me a large amount. At times, I believed of heading back. Having said that, I didn’t. With my parents’ guidance, I worked hard enough to get a scholarship.”



The resolute girl was not one particular to give up. At 19, she completed her instruction and landed a occupation with Air India. Then, she flew a Boeing 737 when she was despatched to Spain for instruction and when she turned 21, she went to London for a different instruction and flew a Boeing 777!

From there on, there was no looking back for her. Anny traveled the planet and proved her capabilities to all people who ever opposed her. 

“I am very pleased to say that India has taken guide in excess of rest of the planet like designed nations when it will come to the amount of feminine pilots. In India, fifteen% girl fly as airline pilots, although globally, it is an ordinary of about five%.”



Her information to the youthful generation is:

“Your dad and mom are your most significant guidance, so trust them to retain you grounded. And there is no substitute for hard work.”

Aye aye, captain!
