New Delhi: The Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has banned 90 pilots of SpiceJet from flying Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. These pilots will now have to undergo a training. Only then will they be allowed to fly the Boeing 737 MAX. According to the DGCA, the initial training of these pilots has not been done properly. After investigation, it has been decided to train everyone again.
DGCA Director General Arun Kumar, while talking to the media, has told that the pilot training of the airline company is also under investigation after such a big flaw has been caught. Whoever is responsible for this mistake, strict action will be taken against him. According to sources, a device called a stick shaker had stopped working during training. This device vibrates the column and emits a loud noise when the aircraft is in danger.
Let us tell you that on 13 March 2019, a Boeing 737 MAX aircraft of Ethiopian Airlines was a victim of an accident near the capital Addis Ababa. A total of 157 people, including 4 Indians, lost their lives in this accident. After this accident, DGCA had banned the flying of these planes. This restriction has been removed after the DGCA was satisfied with Boeing's software in August last year. While lifting the ban, a condition was placed that the pilot flying this aircraft would be given special training.
