Air India pilot accused of evading breath checks to face panel


A senior Air India pilot accused of evading pre-flight breath checks over the past 15 days will face a four-member panel set up by the airline’s flight safety department. The committee was set up hours after an AI pilots’ union told India’s air safety regulator that an executive-rank pilot was skipping the check, which is mandatory before operating a flight. The Hindustan Times reported this on January 31.

This information has already been submitted to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and therefore it is required that this is investigated at the earliest,” read a note put out by the AI flight safety department. The AI spokesperson did not respond to HT’s calls. HT has a copy of the note. Read More…
