The pilot licensing exams under UK CAA International have resumed in Pakistan from May 9 (today) after three years, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Monday.
“The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) has entered into an agreement with the UK CAA International for pilot licensing exams,” said PCAA deputy director general Nadir Shafi Dar.
“The PCAA has entered into a three-year agreement with the UK CAA International for pilot licensing exams,” he added.
“In the first phase, more than 100 candidates will appear for the pilot licensing tests in Karachi today. In the next phase, exams will be held in Islamabad and Lahore,” he stated.
“A large number of candidates are registering for the commercial and airline pilot category exams,” he maintained.
It may be recalled here that in 2020, international airlines had banned Pakistan from taking pilot licensing tests after the controversial statement of the PTI government’s minister for aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan regarding fake pilot license.
