Secretary Aviation Division who is also serving as Director-General of Pakistan Civil Aviation has told the DG Civil Aviation Regulation of Oman that all CPL and ATPL licenses issued by his office are genuine and validly issued. In the same letter, he wrote that his office has cleared or verified 96 pilots licenses out of 104 names received from various civil aviation authorities or foreign airlines. This includes UAE, GACA, Vietnam Airlines, Bahrain Air, Civil Aviation Malaysia, Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department, and Turkish Airlines. The remaining licenses will be cleared by next week.
Secretary Aviation and DG CAA Hasan Nasir Jamy’s letter is completely opposite to what the minister of Aviation said in the parliament or in his press conference. So far CAA has issued two lists of 34 pilots and 14 pilots and even these two lists are problematic. At the same time on Friday, Ethiopia asked the Pakistani government to verify the licences of Pakistani pilots serving there.
