Maybe better airline pilot have a real license.
A international airline has been banned from operating in the United States and Britain. The decision came after it was discovered that a significant percentage of airline pilots could fly with fake or forged licenses.
The US Department of Transportation has suspended Pakistan International Airline’s permission to operate to US destinations, Forbes report. The airline was reportedly notified of the suspension on July 1, the same day the European Union Air Safety Agency began imposing restrictions on airlines from airspace.
According to Forbes, the PIA issued a statement saying, “EASA temporarily suspended PIA authorization to operate to EU member states for an effective six-month period of July 1, 2020, with the right to appeal this decision.”
Fox News previously reported that Pakistan’s state-owned airline had flown at least 150 of its pilots after accusing them of having an affair to get their license. Specifically, the airline believes that this pilot has someone else take the exam for them.
The problem was revealed following an investigation into a deadly accident that killed 97 people in Karachi in May.
When the announcement of the pilot runway was made, Abdullah Hafeez, a PIA spokesman, said, “We will ensure that pilots who do not meet these requirements will never fly an airplane again.”
Some believe that the situation might be worse. Pakistan’s aviation minister, Ghulam Sarqar Khan, had previously stated that 262 of the 860 pilots had “fake” licenses.
Forbes reports that the investigation of airline pilots continues.
