Captain Zoya Agarwal, the first Iɴᴅɪᴀn wOᴍᴀɴ to fly above the North Pole, made aviation history on Friday by securing her seat in the SFO aviation museum. She flew past the North Pole for the first time in history, traveling a record-breaking 16,000 kilometers.
For the first time ever, an all-female Flying Iɴᴅɪᴀ crew, piloted by Zoya Agarwal, flew across the North Pole on the world’s longest air route from San Francisco (SFO) to Bengaluru.
In an interview with a news organization, Captain Zoya Agarwal claimed that she is the only person to have entered the San Francisco Aviation Luis A Turpen Aviation museum, better known as the SFO Aviation Museum, as a pilot. She claims to have been astounded to discover that she was the only living thing present and feels humbled by this realization.
The SFO Museum honored Zoya Agarwal’s distinguished aviation career and her global activism for female empowerment. Millions of young girls and people have been motivated to follow their aspirations by her.
She is the first Iɴᴅɪᴀn wOᴍᴀɴ pilot to be featured in the program, according to a representative of the San Francisco Aviation Museum. She has a distinguished career with Air Iɴᴅɪᴀ, and in 2021, she flew an all-female crew on a record-breaking flight from San Francisco to Bengaluru. Even her optimism and dedication to assisting girls and women in achieving their goals have contributed significantly.
The representative added that the SFO Museum is able to preserve the thrill and significance of Captain Agarwal’s exceptional career by documenting and sharing her personal history with other aviation enthusiasts.
In addition, the SFO Aviation Museum stated that it was honored by her participation and hoped that it will instruct and motivate future generations.
Speaking to ANI, Captain Zoya Agarwal added that it is an honor to be recognized as an excellent pilot and an Iɴᴅɪᴀn lady. She says it’s a wonderful time for her and her nation.
She has also been a trailblazer in inspiring girls and young people to follow their aspirations and serves as one of the UN’s spokespersons for gender equality.
When the San Francisco International Airport Museum first opened its doors in 1980, it used photographs to chronicle the development of aviation and to seek to huᴍᴀɴize the airport’s surroundings. Since then, it has developed into a lively exhibition schedule with galleries in each of the five terminals and a steadily expanding collection of artifacts pertaining to the history of SFO and commercial aviation. So far, there are over 150,000 objects in it.
According to the International Society of Women Airlines, women’s involvement in the Iɴᴅɪᴀn civil aviation industry has grown significantly during the last several years. With 12.4% of all pilots being female, Iɴᴅɪᴀ now has the highest percentage of female pilots worldwide, compared to 5.5% in the US.
