RAF officer trains first female Afghan helicopter pilots

Ministry of Defence said:
The RAF's youngest female pilot, Flying Officer Emma Atkinson, is currently training Afghanistan's first female Air Force helicopter pilots in a small office tucked away in a corner of Kabul's airport.

When asked about the challenges she has faced, Mari said:
"The hardest thing about learning to fly is landing. The communication is hard, having to fly, looking at the instruments, staying at the right altitude, translating everything. It was difficult to start, but now it's getting easier."

Is that not the easy bit, well unless they what to use the helicopter again!
