PIA sacked 8 pilots over fake license issue

The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has sacked 08 pilots from service on the charges of possessing fake and ‘dubious’ licences.

According to the details of Baaghi TV, the PIA management has revoked and terminated licenses of pilots who were confirmed of possessing fake licenses. Yesterday, the chief executive officer (CEO) of PIA, Air Marshal Arshad Malik has signed the list of pilots who were sacked.

Moreover, according to the sources of Baaghi TV, another list carrying names of 20 pilots is under process and will be revealed in a few days.

In response to a probe into a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane crash last month, PIA announced it will ground 150 pilots on charges of obtaining “fake” pilot licenses.

Suspicious license has become a big problem not only for PIA but for all airlines as it is becoming a cause of degradation of the country. The government has decided to take strict action against all pilots who have been flying commercial jets without a licence.
