ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) acknowledged the preliminary report, assuring that it would ground all pilots with dubious licenses. The PIA also said that an independent Flight Data Monitoring setup established to monitor and analyse all flights and all pilots with dubious licenses will be grounded. “PIA acknowledges the AAIB report and have already taken measures learning from it. An independent Flight Data Monitoring setup established to monitor and analyse all flights. All pilots with dubious licenses will be grounded. Safety is more important than any commercial interest,” tweeted the PIA. The announcement from the airline came a few hours after Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan presented the Karachi plane crash preliminary report in the parliament. Earlier, the preliminary report of PIA plane crash held the pilot and air traffic controller responsible for the incident. In their preliminary report on the PK-8303 crash, the investigators claimed that the lives of 97 people held the pilot of PIA plane and air traffic controller responsible for the incident. The report also stated that the pilot of the PK-8303 did not follow the procedure and he was overconfident. “The air traffic controller is equally responsible for the incident as he did not asked the pilot to make landing instead of taking off when the engine hit the runway,” the report added. The report has been prepared with the cockpit voice recorder data, planes debris and other evidence collected from the crashed site by the probe team.
