Glitch means 4% clear pilot exam

New Delhi: Following a software glitch, less than 4 per cent candidates managed to clear the first-ever online examinations for pilot licence conducted by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) earlier this month, that too in only one subject out of 12.
The exams had been started after a number of pilots were found to have used fradulent means to acquire their flying licences. Following Friday’s results, none of the 4,000 candidates will be able to secure a licence. Nearly, 900 candidates appeared for the Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) or commander’s licence, while the rest were mostly for Commercial Pilot Licence or co-pilots’.
According to top DGCA officials, of the 4,000 candidates who appeared in the online examinations during December 3-9, 175-odd candidates managed to clear only one subject — air navigation.
