"My colleagues and the passengers accepted me at first sight, and I was proud to show what women were capable of " Ms Ildikó CZIGÁNY was the first female pilot at the Hungarian company MALÉV. In the 1990s the relevant legislation needed to be amended regarding a Health regulation to allow women to take up a position in the public passenger transport sector. Since then a long line of female pilots has succeeded. Today she is definitely a role model. When asked about what motivates her, she answered: "The main motivation is curiosity, the desire to discover new areas."
