PLAN NA is recruiting female carrier-based aircraft pilot students for the first time

I think this is a misinterpretation. The official announcement doesn't mention specific aircraft types. The recruitment drive is presumably for all aircraft flown by PLANAF, which would include anything from the J-15 to special mission aircraft to lowly helicopters. The difference this year is that the candidate pool has been expanded to include college freshmen, and women may apply for the first time. Of course, if a female cadet proves herself, I'm sure she could qualify for J-15 training. The news article seems to imply that PLANAF is specifically looking for female J-15 pilots, which is not what the official announcement says.
