And superior physical fitness attributes.
In a post on the Republic of Singapore Air Force Facebook page on April 21, 2015, they highlighted the achievements of a female officer 2LT Lynette Lioh, who was commissioned on April 18 as an AWO (C3), also known as Air Warfare Officer – Command, Control and Communications.
Her physical fitness record is nothing short of astounding.
Lioh managed a 2.4km timing of 8:49, 73 sit-ups and 69 push-ups, which translates into a perfect 100 points for the female IPPT age group under 22 years old — which completely destroys many guys her age.
She holds the record for being the only female Officer Cadet in the history of Officer Cadet School to have won the Overall Best Physical Training (PT) in the PT excellence challenge with her IPPT results.
The AWO (C3) role is a relatively new vocation that was introduced in 2009 in the RSAF, due to the transformation of the air force to a 3rd generation (3G) fighting force. AWO(C3) was previously known as Weapons Systems Officer-WSO (C3).
The AWO (C3) is in charge of controlling air operations and involved in commanding fighter aircraft to perform strike missions, intercept operations and time-sensitive search-and-rescue missions.
