This 30-year-old Indian became world’s youngest woman commander to fly Boeing 777
Anny Divya always wanted to be a pilot; probably her determination to achieve her goal led her to the path of success. At 30, Anny Divya became the world’s youngest woman commander to fly Boeing 777.
Anny was born in a modest family in Pathankot. Her father was in the army, who took voluntary retirement and later settled in Vijaywada. She did her schooling in Vijaywada. Other children used to make fun of her for her dream to become a pilot. Anny’s parents never forced their choice on her. They were supportive and progressive in their thinking.
Anny, who is currently based in Mumbai, completed her training by the age of 19. After the training, she got a job with Air India. Since then, there was no looking back for Anny Divya. She was sent to Spain for training. When she came back, she got the opportunity to fly Boeing 737.
When I turned 21, I was sent to London for further training. It was then when I started to fly Boeing 777. Since then, my life has changed. It’s been a great experience so far. I’ve got the opportunity to travel to various countries. My journey so far has taught me a lot, Anny said.
Though Anny’s journey towards fulfilling her dream wasn’t easy, but Captain Anny Divya battled her way to achieve success.
