Rosemary Sugh is definitely not afraid to fly. The native of Kwande local government area of Benue state, who is the first female pilot from her state trained as a pilot at the Nigeria College of Aviation Technology, Zaria. Her professional profile looks fair enough for a 23-year old as she has flown a TD20, a TD9, a Multi Engine, and a B68 plane.
Speaking during an interview regarding why she chose to fly she said;
It was my childhood determination. When I look up and see planes flying and making noise , I was like, God, I have to be a pilot. And it helped me in the sense that the kind of movies I watched, one of the movies was Starship Trooper. There was a lot of discouragement from my parents and other people. They assumed that if you are a lady and you are a pilot, you may not marry, you can’t cope with marriage. So, when I saw a lady in that Starship Trooper, I was moved. I said wow, if this girl can fly, then I can fly. And I put it into prayers, despite all the obstacles and discouragement.
The next time you see a plane shooting across the sky, it might just be Rosemary Sugh.
