Fake pilots in India actually flying planes

Scary story


Three commercial airline pilots based in India have been grounded after local aviation regulators determined they used forged documents to obtain their pilot's credentials and have been flying illegally.


Recently, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) in India grounded an Indigo Airlines pilot, Parminder Kaur, for retraining after she continually landed her Airbus A320 improperly, causing damage to the aircraft. During the training, it was determined her paperwork was fake and she did not pass the Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL) exam.


As a result of that incident, the aviation authority has been examining the documentation of other pilots and has found two additional pilots with phony licenses flying for Indigo and the carrier MDLR, which has since gone out of business.


"We are examining pilot licenses and have found two more cases (of fake ATPL papers). While the licenses have been revoked, these cases have also been referred to the police for further action," DGCA chief Bharat Bhushan told the Times of India.


The discovery of invalid papers worries local Indian officials who are dealing with a booming airline industry and many new low-cost carriers aggressively competing for pilots. Both the DGCA chief and Indigo president said that there can be no compromise on safety and will continue to investigate additional pilots.


Indigo was also in the news last month when a male passenger delayed a flight when he refused to fly in a plane with a female pilot.

Happens in every other trade I know about that requires an education/license to work in so I am not surprised it happens in the airline industry as well.

Probably a lot bigger problem in than the media knows about.

Shipping industry is a trade where this happens alot, I read an survey from about 2002-2003 that stated that over 30000 seafarers are working worldwide with some type type of fake license, certificate or training.

The three Indian airline pilots that got caught is probably just the tip of the iceberg in the aviation industry.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
