Chief justice says incompetent pilots fly planes like missiles
ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed has expressed resentment over “incompetent pilots’” flying passenger planes with fake licenses. He said it was tantamount to a propelling missile that could explode anytime.
He expressed these remarks in response to the preliminary report of the Karachi plane crash incident, while hearing a suo moto case pertaining to measures against coronavirus in Islamabad. He summoned the chief executive officer of the Pakistan International Airline and other relevant officials on the next date of hearing to give clarification on the plane crash without technical fault and issuance of fake degrees and licenses to pilots.
The chief justice inquired that how could fake licenses and degrees be issued to pilots.
On Jun 24, Federal Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan had said that the recent Karachi plane crash incident took place because the pilots were not focused and they were discussing coronavirus throughout the travel.
“I heard the conversation of last half an hour through voice recorder and found out that they were discussing coronavirus during travelling as one of the pilots’ family was affected of it,” Ghulam Sarwar had said while speaking during the National Assembly session in Islamabad.
