India: Glitch means 4% clear pilot exam - Directorate General of Civil Aviation

Following a software glitch, less than 4 percent candidates managed to clear the first-ever online examinations for pilot license 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 licenses. 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 License (ATPL) or commander’s license, while the rest were mostly for Commercial Pilot License 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.

The results were posted on the air safety regulator’s website at 5.30 pm today.
