Naima Gul was the first female pilot (honorary) of the 9th Squadron of the Pakistan Army Aviation. Naima, who is suffering from Thalassemia, had requested the Chief of the Army Staff in a letter and expressed her desire to become the first female pilot (honorary) in the Pakistan Army Aviation’s history. Her wish came true when General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani directed the Pakistan Army Aviation Academy to provide her with a chance to participate in a mock mission. Naima said that she doesn’t know how long she will be able to fight the illness but she will live for her country and die for it. She also said that that she wanted to help patients suffering from this disease by establishing the Naima Gul Foundation, which will provide free medication to patients of Thalassemia
