Fake Pilots Busted for Forging Documents

Reports now show that 3 commercial airline pilots have been grounded after local aviation regulators in India were able to determine that they forged documents. These fake documents were used to help the pilots’ credentials, meaning, overall the pilots have been flying illegally.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation in India was forced to ground an Indigo Airlines pilot. They grounded Parminder Kaur after she continually landed her Airbus A320 improperly. This caused a lot of damage to the plane. During the training, it was finally determined that her paperwork was false and she did not pass the Airline Transport Pilot License exam.
The scary thing about this is that she has been flying planes full of people and she did not even know how to safely land the plane. However, the bad news did not stop there. Aviation authorities have already been examining the documentations of other pilots as well. So far they have found two other pilots that have phony licenses and are flying for Indigo and the carrier called MDLR. Of course, MDLR has since gone out of business.
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation chief, Bharat Bhushan, said that they are currently examining pilot license. So far they have found two more cases. While the licenses have already been revoked, these cases have been referred to the police for even further action.
The discovery of these fake papers does worry Indian officials. It is not known what is going to happen to the men and women that used these fake papers to get jobs. Either way, officials will continue to check papers to see if any more fake pilots surface.
