After three years, the UK CAA International started pilot licensing exams in Pakistan on May 9.
PCAA deputy director-general Nadir Shafi Dar remarked, “The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) has entered into an arrangement with the UK CAA International for pilot licensing tests.”
“The PCAA has signed a three-year agreement for pilot licensing exams with the UK CAA International,” he said.
“Today, more than 100 applicants will take the pilot license tests in Karachi as part of the first phase.” Exams would be held in Islamabad and Lahore in the next phase,” he said.
He said, “A huge number of candidates are registering for the commercial and airline pilot category exams.”
After the contentious comments of the PTI government’s minister for aviation, Ghulam Sarwar Khan, about the fake pilot license, international airlines barred Pakistan from taking pilot licensing exams in 2020.
