KARACHI: A resident of Karachi’s Landhi area has become successful in building a micro-light aircraft after a struggle of five years.
According to a video received by Dialogue Pakistan, Arsalan engineered the airplane which could be used for spraying on large-scale crops and also as air ambulance. The 17-year-old belongs to a middle-class family.
“The basic purpose of building the aircraft is to be used in sports flying. After adding an extra seat and installing a cabin, it could be used as air ambulance too. The plane could fly up to 10,000 feet height and it needs one kilometer runway to take off,” he said.
Hundreds watched in delight as the plane took off from a road in Landhi town.
Few months ago a pop-corn seller in Punjab was arrested for flying a homemade aircraft without certification from the aviation authority.
