The aviation field is generally dominated by males across the globe however Squadron Leader Angeline Bosha is championing for the cause for female representation in the airforce.

Squadron Leader Angeline Bosha is the first female jet fighter pilot of the Air Force of Zimbabwe.

Squadron Leader Bosha (30) qualified as a fighter jet pilot after she completed a year-long training course in China in the year 2018, she was the only female student in a class of 14 pilots from across the world.

In a interview, Bosha implored all women not to expect preferential treatment but to work hard to be successful in life.

“I just told myself that I can do it. The support I have been receiving from my superiors back home has been valuable and I just told myself that ‘yes I can,’ even if I was the only female.

“My instructor here in Zimbabwe encouraged me to take up the course. He told me that I can do it and I just worked very hard to achieve it.

“The most important thing to ladies out there is that they should not expect special treatment because there are such fields like ours where there is no separation when it comes to training.

“The training is standard for both male and females so there is no special treatment,” she said.
