25-year old Blessing Liman, from Zangon-Kataf Local Government Area in Kaduna State, recently made history by becoming Nigeria’s first ever female fighter pilot. She has been commissioned into the Nigerian Air Force’s corps of fighter-pilots alongside 126 men with whom she completed the Direct Short Service Course 20/2011 Cadets of 325 Ground Training Group at the NAF Base in Kaduna.

Chinyere Onyemucheya, became Nigeria’s first female commercial airline pilot 31 years earlier in 1980.
