Suspended Air India pilot flies plane to Dubai

An Air India pilot operated a flight to Dubai while he was under suspension for allegedly attempting to bury an incident of turbulence on an earlier flight.

According to a report in Mid-Day, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) had suspended Captain SP Suri for not reporting an incident of massive turbulence on AI348 Delhi-Shanghai flight on July 5. The turbulence damaged parts of the plane and injured several passengers. It is alleged that the captain asked the crew to stay quiet.

However, when DGCA learnt of the incident, he was de-rostered pending inquiry, which is still under progress, according to the paper.

But this did not stop the pilot from flouting rules yet again. He operated AI 995 Delhi-Dubai on August 1, violating aviation and immigration guidelines, the paper quoted civil aviation ministry officials as saying.
