August 21, 2016 Air Force celebrated the Day of Russia. This is a professional holiday of all pilots, aviators and aviation infrastructure workers, which is celebrated annually on the third Sunday of August. The day is set by the Presidium of the Supreme Council of the Russian Federation in 1992.
Many still believe that to manage a serious technique - not a woman's business. With this statement clearly does not agree to the heroine of this article. The girls exchanged a warm place at the stove in the pilot's seat. And that's what came out of it.
Civil aviation in Russia is represented mostly by men. The first female pilot began working in the Russian airline only in 2009, and now in Russia only about 30 pilotess. One of them - Mary Uvarov, working in the "Aeroflot". The girl came out of the Air Force Institute of Architecture, where the parallel with the training involved in the aviation club. The hobby has grown into a main profession, and now Maria operates Airbus A320.
And this is - Larina Evmurzaeva, the first woman - pilot of civil aviation in the history of the Chechen Republic. The girl's parents recognized that for a long time did not tell anyone where their daughter was admitted to study: fear of misunderstanding on the part of others. But now Larina proud of all of Chechnya. She piloted the Yak-42 and to the strict form of "Grozny Avia" Airlines always adds a traditional Muslim headscarf.
The fact that a woman's hands are able to grip the steering wheel, the loudest, perhaps, said Svetlana Kapanina - seven-time absolute world champion among women in aerobatics. At the beginning of the 21st century, Svetlana got exactly FAI medal as the best pilot of the century! Behind this striking blonde - hundreds dizzying flights, several world records and winning dozens of different caliber.
Russian TV presenter Tatyana Arno appeared in the sky, almost by accident. Several years ago, she was invited to participate in the project of the First Channel, "There is only a moment," in which everyone had the opportunity to fly leading to real MiGs. The project ended and presenter affair with sky continues. Tatiana Arno recognized that in the sky, she immediately felt just as comfortable as on earth.
There among the stars and ordinary characters with amazing stories. For example, a resident of Moscow Ekaterina Shtareva since childhood suffered the strongest aerophobia, 15 years staying in horror at the thought of an airplane. As fate and natural stubbornness Katya first cured aerophobia and early just to be safely fly on holiday. However, this is not stopped, he went to study at the private pilot license and for three years now flies on light airplanes, cruise confidently mastering technique. His personal example inspired Kate aerophobia on the path to recovery, is themed blog that not only shares his experience about how to overcome aerophobia, but also talks about his flight and on the airfield life.
Even more dispels the myth about women's inability to fly a plane example of Natalia Gincu. Beautiful, blonde, model - all signs dasher nevertheless did not prevent Natalia become a pilot of his own jet aircraft L-29. On its Web site model also he said that he can manage the Yak-18T, Yak-52 and glider L-13 Blanik.
But in America, the fact that the model could be a pilot, no surprise. The famous "angel" Victoria's Secret Gisele Bundchen seized control helicopter art, being six months pregnant!
Interest to aircraft in American women greatly increased when the aeronautics mastered the idol of millions of Angelina Jolie. Actress bought a plane to see more of her husband Brad Pitt, as his shooting often held far from home. Ordinary people, of course, its own Airbus will not afford, but the dream is not harmful.
And it's only a few striking examples of women pilots. But, even though such arguments, many are still important, the woman at the helm, or a man. But for you it really matter?
