She said – ” I was about 10 years old and I was in the place of my grandfather and there was a minister who came to meet people and I’ve seen a man flying a helicopter. It was a lot of inspiration for me. In my mind, I thought I might fly something like this one day as well”.

Shivangi joined operational duties at the Kochi naval base and she will be flying the Dornier surveillance aircraft of the Indian Navy.
