According to news sources, Shukriya Khanum - the first Pakistani woman to obtain Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL) - has passed away.

Ms. Khanum also served PIA as ground instructor and taught CPL ground course subjects to Cadet Pilots.

Maybe female pilots were not allowed in PIA in her days?

^ Nice article.

Is there any article with further information about her days as student pilot for obtaining CPL and later her years with PIA as ground instructor?
