Hanoi (VNA) – Female pilot Le Thi Bich Hong, born in 1985, has become the first female Vietnamese captain of Jetstar Pacific Airlines.

Hong had experience as a deputy captain in four years before the August 1 promotion.

The budget carrier now has 41 Vietnamese pilots. According to regulations, after an official training course, each pilot has to experience 150 flight hours before becoming a deputy captain. To be a captain, the pilot accumulates at least 4,000 flight hours and passes a test which meets international standards.

Jetstar Pacific, whose two major shareholders are Vietnam Airlines and Australia-based Qantas Group, operates flights between 16 destinations in Vietnam and 180 others in 18 countries around the world. –VNA

"... From the beginning of the first century A.D., when the two Trung Sisters rose up to fight the enemy and save the nation, until now, whenever our country has faced danger, our women have contributed whatever they could toward the cause of national liberation.

Our people are grateful that our mothers from South and North alike have borne and raised our nation's generation of heroes....

Under the Socialist system, tens of thousands of women have become specialists in different fields and, as cadre, serve as directors and vice-directors of factories, leaders of farming cooperatives, presidents of People’s Committees, and general secretaries of Party Cells....

And so, the women of Vietnam from ancient times until now, from South to North, from young to old, are truly heroes ..."

(Excerpted from President Ho Chi Minh's speech on the 36th Anniversary of Vietnam Women's Union 20 October 1966)
