Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has faced a major controversy over the operation and recruitment of pilots. Recently, 150 PIA pilots have been banned from flying. This information was provided by the government airlines of Pakistan.
It said action had been taken against the pilots as their licenses were forged. It may be mentioned that the report of the investigation into the plane crash that took place on May 8 was presented in Parliament.
Meanwhile, Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan made several explosive revelations. He said PIA has 40 pilots out of which 150 have been banned. On the other hand, there are 3 pilots whose exams were also given by someone else.
The pilots also don’t have enough experience
The minister further said that appointments are made in PIA due to government pressure and collusion. When an investigation was conducted in this direction in February 2015, many details came to light. In particular, it was found that there were 3 pilots who never took the exam and became pilots. His flying test was also given by someone else. He also did not have enough experience. Even today, there are many pilots in PIA who do not have enough experience of international flights or domestic flights. He also said that it was unfortunate for Pakistan that the aviation sector was also being infiltrated by the authorities.
