Two more Indian airline pilots arrested over fake qualifications

23 March 2011

Two more Indian airline pilots have been arrested for using fake qualifications to gain their flying licences, as regulators delve into a growing aviation safety scandal.

After the men were detained yesterday in the western city of Jaipur, local anti-corruption police chief Umesh Mishra said the two men had obtained their licences by “‘submitting forged flying certificates.'”

The two arrested pilots worked for the low-cost airline SpiceJet before they were fired last week for “‘misrepresenting their flying hours in order to obtain their licences,'” according to a statement from the airline.
