An all-female pilot crew will fly over the North Pole for the first time, making some kind of history in the process. Indeed, it’s every pilot’s desire to fly commercially.
Aviation experts say it’s incredibly complex and takes ability and experience to fly over the North Pole.

She will fly above the North Pole as Air Iɴᴅɪᴀ’s first female flight comᴍᴀɴder. Although Air Iɴᴅɪᴀ pilots have flown over the polar route before, a crew of female pilots will be the first to do so.
