Partially female?

In this news report from Inside Ireland we read:

On Friday the 9th August, the Shannon based Search and Rescue (SAR) Helicopter (R115) flew its first missions with the first all-female pilot and co-pilot Capt. Dara Fitzpatrick and Capt. Carmel Kirby.

That suggests that there had been previous missions with partially-female pilots or co-pilots.

Or that Inside Ireland needs someone to rewrite its less felicitous phrases.
