On Wednesday, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has verified and cleared 58 pilots’ licenses serving in Pakistan International Airlines (PIA).

According to the details, the licenses were declared clear after DG Civil Aviation Authority did the forensic audit of the licenses.

Among the 58 pilots, two sisters, Maryam Masood and Erum Masood were also included whose licenses CAA has cleared.

Earlier in June, Federal Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan had announced in a National Assembly session that 262 out of 860 PIA pilots are suspected to have fake licenses and 150 pilots have been sacked over it.

He had also said that hiring in the company took place on the basis of political affiliations.
