Female Pilot from Impoverished Family Flies Helicopter in China's Tibet - All China Women's Federation


Woman Pilot from Impoverished Family Flies Helicopter in China's Tibet
 October 11, 2019
Jianre Yixi prepares to fly a helicopter in southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region, Aug. 7, 2019. The Qinghai-Tibet Plateau was once known as a "no-fly zone" and it was extremely difficult to fly helicopters there. Now, after professional and intensive training, the first batch of young Tibetans has flown civilian helicopters to the Mt. Qomolangma base camp. Jianre Yixi is from an impoverished herdsman family in Damxung County, Tibet. In 2016, Jianre Yixi, a student at Lhasa's No. 2 Secondary Vocational and Technical School, received a call to change her fate when a company selected pilots from poverty-stricken families. After studying more than 10 theoretical courses and hundreds of hours of intensive training, Jianre Yixi spent one year learning the flight skills and successfully obtained a commercial helicopter flight license. "The cost of training a pilot exceeds 1 million yuan (140,942 U.S. dollars), which is entirely covered by the government and enterprises. This has changed her destiny and that of her family. Once I flew a helicopter back to Damxung on a mission, the villagers praised me as a fairy flying into the blue sky and a pride of Damxung," she said. [Xinhua]
