Indian pilot was not a trainee: UAE aviation Authority

Written by: Staff

Dubai, Sep 1 (UNI) UAE aviation officials have denied claims that the Indian pilot, who was killed after his plane crashed into a mountain in Oman, was a trainee.

The Emirates Flying School said Tejas Kwana, 23, was a licensed pilot qualified to fly the single engine Piper Cherokee 28 that crashed on Tuesday at Al Madha.

Kwana had obtained his Private Pilot Licence (PPL) six months ago and was in fact one of the best students of the college, an official said.

A spokesman for Dubai Civil Aviation Authority said it might take up to three months before the cause of the accident would be ascertained.
