Liu Yuhuan, who was an air force pilot, comes from a family of pilots. She began flying in 1991 and is rated in a range of aircraft. Her mother was an air-force pilot. This mother and daughter team is unique in the history of Chinese aviation.
Liu came to China Southern Airlines at the end of 2003 from an impressive air force career. Now she has passed the pilot evaluation, and became captain.
After the evaluation, she said, ‘I am confident that I am competent to be a captain, having passed through rigorous training and examinations — but this is just the beginning – there will more challenges and more responsibility in future.’
