Fake pilot licenses...
« on: June 30, 2020, 12:16:17 PM »
How much of a real issue is it in North America? Pakistan found out that a 1/3 of pilots in their country have fake credentials, from commercial ratings, ILS/Night quals, twin ratings, right up to their actual license.

So, is there an international body that regulates, records, and issues pilots licenses, or is it an individual country's responsibility? Could explain a majority of airplane crashes we see all over the world?

Since fake university/college diplomas are a real thing, was this just a matter of time before we all realised that these morons can also fake pilots licenses and other qualifications?

What a mess.

And no, I no longer have any flying licenses. (for now).

Itís not an issue in North America. But in Asia it is a huge problem.

It's pretty tightly regulated and silly easy to confirm so fake creds aren't really an issue in the US from what I have read.

Plus, US airlines tend to do exhaustive background checks, contact references, conduct extensive ground schools, and then get in the simulator for several sessions followed by a qualification checkride.

I'm actually impressed that Pakistan fired 1/3 of its pilots.
