A check of 4000 commercial airline pilots in India has resulted in 14 being found to have fake documentation.
All of the 14 pilots were connect to Rajasthan State Flying School and it is said that the school did not complete the pre-requisite of 200 hours of training with the Chief Flight Instructor issuing fake records of flying training sessions.
An additional twist to the story is that a son of an official of the General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is one of the 14 to have their pilots licence cancelled.
Despite the scandal, India is said to have one of the safest aviation records.
