DGCA strict on lapses in pilot training, SpiceJet will have to pay a fine of 10 lakhs
New Delhi, 30 May. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has taken major action against Spijet for the flaws in the pilot training system. SpiceJet has been fined Rs 10 lakh for training pilots of 737 MAX aircraft on a faulty simulator.
The regulator had issued a show-cause notice to the airline after the DGCA banned the pilots. The reply sent by the airlines did not satisfy the queries of DGCA. Now the DGCA has fined SpiceJet Rs 10 lakh for using a faulty simulator to train the pilots of its Max aircraft.
The DGCA has suspended the Air Traffic Controller (ATC) for 3 months for being involved in approving the take-off of 2 IndiGo flights at the Bengaluru airport simultaneously in January. ATC issues a warning letter to the tower supervisor for not monitoring the tower movements and not reporting the incident. After this, now the flights of Spijet are bound to be adversely affected.

At the same time, on Saturday itself, the DGCA had also imposed a fine of Rs 5 lakh on the airline company IndiGo in a case. Private airline Indigo Airlines was accused of refusing to allow a child with disabilities to board the flight. Now due to the tough stand of DDCA, if airlines like SpiceJet, Indigo do not rectify their shortcomings, then the coming days may be worse for them.
