Suman Sharma

On February 13, 2009, Suman Sharma became the first woman to co-pilot a Russian MiG-35 fighter plane in Bangalore, India.  According to the Limca Book of Records (2010), "The 42-minute sortie with Russian pilot Mikhail Belyaev touched elevations up to 20,000 ft., performed side rolls and made a 360 degree vertical dive, experiencing a maximum of 7G-force pull."

She is also the recipient of countless awards for journalism and has taken an active role in standing up for rape victims.

In a recent interview with writer, Joe Hefferon, Suman states that she is currently focused on the elections and a major aerospace contract. "I am closely tracking the MMRCA story-- which is the single largest defense deal in the world-for 126 medium multi-role combat aircraft for the Indian air force, the deal is not yet sealed, plus India will have general elections next month. There will be change in government, which means change in policies, so its a crucial time for the country."
