The Prayer-flag Crew consisted of 10 members with Tibet Airlines of southwest China's Tibet is the first  all-women team for high-plateau airlines in China's civil aviation history.

"My family gives  me a lot of support so that I could work without worry," she said.
Different from Wang Fohui, Duan Ruiying, who attracts more than tens of thousands fans on social media, used to work for media and was motivated to learn flying herself when interviewing the first female pilot of Airbus airplanes in China.

Changing careers from media to aviation was not easy. Everything from high-intensity physical training to theoretical knowledge that has never learned before was filled with challenges, but she still managed to score more than 92 on all three licensing tests and finished her courses with excellent grades.
Duan also hoped to deliver her positive energy to online friends, and to improve even more this year to  become a qualified flight captain.
