Sack Aviation Watchdog Chief Over Kerala Crash Remarks, Say Pilot Unions

Two leading pilot unions of Air India on Tuesday said DGCA chief Arun Kumar must be immediately replaced with a suitable candidate with substantial knowledge of the aviation sector and operational experience as his comments on news channels reveal a total lack of technical know-how and an “amateurish view” of the Kozhikode plane crash.
According to the Indian Commercial Pilots’ Union (ICPA) and Indian Pilots’ Guild (IPG), Mr Kumar said during one of the televised interviews that the plane’s “landing was not smooth”.

On another news channel, Mr Kumar stated that the “two fellows are dead…and the landing it seems was not appropriate”, according to a letter jointly written by the two unions to Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri on Tuesday.
