Pakistan International Airlines Grounds Third Of Pilots After Crash That Killed 98 People

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article in The Times.

This paragraph chilled me.

Pilots without adequate experience and technical knowledge obtained their qualifications by paying others to take their examinations, officials said.

I don’t think Pakistan International Airlines will be high on my list of preferred airlines.

  1. That is appalling – but I bet it isn’t only in Pakistan that it is happening. I used to invigilate exams at the local 6th form college, and all students had to have photo ID in case there’re were any substitute students. I don’t see the point, because if you haven’t got the knowledge bas, you can’t do whatever the qualification qualifies you to actually do.
