The newly turned over C-130 cargo plane to the Philippine Air Force was flown to the Philippines from the United States with a female pilot-in-command, Major Marjorie Mukay. This was the first time in the history of the Philippine military that a cargo plane was flown by a female pilot-in-command. News story from Global Inquirer.
Female pilots are rapidly increasing and earning their seats in the cockpit in the male-dominated airline industry with Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines records showing that there are now 25 certified woman pilots operating planes across the country in the first quarter of 2015.
