Shady appointments in CAA, cabinet meeting called today

The Federal Cabinet meets today (Tuesday) with Prime Minister Imran Khan in the chair to decide about the suspicious licenses of pilots issued by Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA). 

According to details, the agenda of the meeting includes discussion on suspicious licenses issued by CAA and cabinet will also decide about fate of these pilots. The officials of Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will also brief the cabinet on the issue.

The CAA is the regulator of the civil aviation sector in Pakistan under the PCAA Ordinance, 1982. According to the rules, a regulator should be independent of the government and the industry that it regulates. However, this unfortunately, is not the case with the CAA.

The secretary, aviation division, acts as the chairman of the CAA’s board. However, since the past years, secretaries, aviation division, are also holding the additional charge of acting Director General (DG) of the CAA.

According to the sources of Baaghi TV, Hassan Nasir Jamy is one of the most responsible people in CAA’s fake license issue as the DG CAA. Jamy has been appointed as acting director regulatory authority since December 2019.

Jamy came from the Pakistan Administrative Service (PAS) with an MBA, an MA in rural development, and a fellowship from the US in public policy. He was given the charge of climate change, petroleum and water & power divisions before being appointed in the aviation division.

What is the relevance of Jamy’s education and experience to the posts he is currently holding?

The PIA crash in May taking lives of 97 people, banning of PIA in Europe by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) — are these not major debacles that call for accountability of the incompetent directors on the boards of the CAA and PIA?

Furthermore, the advertisement for the post of DG of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) never asked for the EASA qualification of the person applying, there were no requirements for the International Air Transport Association (IATA) or International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) qualifications of the candidate.

Pakistan is paying a heavy price domestically as well as internationally for the incompetence of those at the helm of affairs in CAA because of these shady appointments and it’s time to start seriously thinking about the future of Pakistan’s aviation sector.
