2 Female Officers Winged By Nigerian Air Force After Qualifying As Pilots

History was made on Wednesday, January 17, as two female officers were winged by the Nigerian Air Force after embarking on a one-year training programme in Westline Aviation in South Africa, where they qualified as pilots.

They are Flying Officers OS Ijelu and GC Nwaogwgwu. They were winged alongside 9 other male flying officers in a ceremony which a former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Paul Dike (rtd) was the guest of honour.

Congrats to the ladies and the guys.
