After fake pilots, brace yourself for fake pilot training institutes. The first of its kind case was detected in Palam Extension, Dwarka, last week.
An institute promising pilot training and issuance of licenses at the earliest on the basis of its self claimed links in the aviation regulatory agency for Rs. 18-20 lakh was busted when Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) Bharat Bhushan received a complaint from a victim last week and investigated the matter.Not very fluent in Hindi, Bhushan asked one of his officers to call up the institute and pose as an aspiring pilot from a speaker phone in front of him.The person running the institute did not open up initially and asked how did we got to know about him. When told that we had been referred by some DGCA officials, the person opened up and started talking freely. He asked us to download the form from the website and assured us of 100% placement. He asked us to come to his office on any working day between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm to know about the payment schedule, said sources. When asked about any basic requirement for becoming a pilot, the caller was told he should be fluent in English. The institute, whose name has not been disclosed as that may affect the probe, claimed to have branches all over India.Bhushan referred the matter to the police, resulting in a raid on the institutes Dwarka office last Saturday 2nd July. A person running the place was arrested. When contacted, Bhushan said, I received a complaint and investigated that by getting an officer to contact the institute posing as a student. The complaint was found to be correct and referred to the police.DGCA is now probing the institute. It may have been a front for some insiders and we are examining this aspect. We are also trying to find out how many students they may have helped with their dubious methods, said sources.Calling the Bluff
