SpiceJet has been fined Rs 10 lakh by the aviation regulator DGCA for training its Boeing 737 Max aircraft pilots using a malfunctioning simulator, which could have jeopardised flight safety, according to sources.
After discovering that 90 SpiceJet pilots were not adequately qualified, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) stopped them from flying the Max aircraft last month.
According to sources, the regulator had issued a show-cause notice to the airline after prohibiting the pilots.
The airline’s reaction was deemed unsatisfactory, according to them.
“The airline’s training could have had a negative impact on flight safety, thus it was cancelled,” one of the people said.
