Swati, a fearless pilot, flying solo as she ferries political leaders and VIPs across the country, even during these challenging COVID times.
Swati graduated from Pathways School Noida in 2015 with a firm goal of becoming a commercial pilot. After successfully passing a series of rigorous entrance exams, she gained admission to and graduated from one of India's most prestigious training institutes, the Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Udaan Academy. Here, she received comprehensive training on the technical aspects of aircraft, weather patterns, communication methods, and simulation, ultimately earning her license to operate commercial aircraft in 2018. Today, she holds the distinction of being the youngest woman pilot to fly charter aircraft in India.
While her training was undeniably demanding, Swati credits her ability to communicate effectively, self-manage, and think critically to her classroom education at Pathways School Noida. Excelling in Mathematics and Physics gave her a competitive edge over her classmates at the training institute.
Swati's connection with Pathways Noida and its commitment to community outreach extended beyond her time at the school. She recently drafted a proposal on behalf of Sulaxmi Schools and presented it to PSN, which subsequently adopted the school to support underprivileged children.
