Meet Captain Aarohi Pandit, the Ryan International School alumna who’s setting new records

The sky is certainly not the limit when it comes to flying high, especially for Indian women. Captain Aarohi Pandit has scripted history once again by becoming the world’s first woman to fly solo over Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean in a Light Sports Aircraft (LSA). The 23-year-old is a resident of Borivali, Mumbai, and is a former student of Ryan International School.

During her nearly 13 months of circumnavigation flight, she has broken and created several records. These include becoming the first woman to fly all across Canada from the North East to the North West via the South, and the world's first woman to complete a solo flight over the treacherous Greenland ice-cap in an LSA.

Before undertaking the journey, Aarohi underwent a seven-month preparatory training schedule in Greenland, India, Siberia, and Italy over oceans, high altitude, and snow, testing her physical and mental capabilities. She also had to cope up with several mental and physical exercises, to prepare her for taking on the toughest terrains and weather conditions while being all alone in the cockpit.  

Till date, Captain Aarohi Pandit has logged in 29,500 km in 50 legs across three continents and 20 countries in 'Mahi', her small LSA. While flying across the Pacific Ocean, she crossed the International Date Line, also called the Line of Confusion, where the date changes and the functioning of all instruments is disrupted for a few minutes.   

Talking about her flight, the Ryan International School alumna says, “I lost one day of my life which I will never get back (on crossing IDL). The Pacific Ocean flight was more beautiful than the Atlantic Ocean crossing and it was also one of my most enjoyable. I feel honoured to achieve these records for India and women all over.”

With her latest achievement, Aarohi Pandit has certainly proved that there are no limits except the ones we place on ourselves.
