ADILABAD: If you want to know how even earthy girls can earn wings, meet Ghanta Swathi, the first person from Adilabad town to acquire a commercial pilot licence. She will be joining the Aviator Flying Inc. of the United States soon as an instructor and charter pilot.

“A different vocation is what I had always desired. I wanted to join the Air Force but circumstances led me to train as a commercial pilot,” reveals the youngster confessing to being influenced by dogfights shown in a film. “With the all important support of my family, I could give wings to my desire,” she adds somewhat philosophically.

Swathi is the eldest among the four children of head constable (traffic) Murali. She graduated from a college in Adilabad before joining the AP Aviation Academy in Hyderabad in 2006 for a brief period. “After only about 10 hours of flying, I enrolled with the Aviator and flew for 200 hours before getting my licence. I trained in Dallas in USA and Cebu in Philippines,” explains Swathi. (మరింత…)
