Yes definitely a female has the chance to be a pilot. It's not in any way a sexist job. Last 2 years when I underwent the Outward Bound Singapore 21 Days course, my batch met another batch of the same course who were from Singapore Flying College. They were about to finish the 21 days course when we started. Out of their group of 16, one of them is indeed a female. But I'm not sure if SIA has female Captains or First Officers coz I've never seen one at work. But the female cadet pilots might be posted to SilkAir or SIA Cargo? I'm not sure about that.

SIA does not employ female pilots. Only silkair does, and very rarely at that. Paige knows what she's talking about.

Go to www.pprune.org. A wealth of information there. Any particular airline you're looking at?
