LAHORE Though it is very hard to say anything about the reason behind the Airblue plane crash prior to the compilation of an inquiry report, most of the aviation experts have termed the incident a human mistake. Sources in the aviation industry claim that the pilot of the plane had previously served in the PIA and his medical record shows that he was suffering from an uncontrolled level of diabetes and hypertension. The pilot remained grounded a couple of months back and was admitted to Aga Khan Hospital Karachi for treatment, an expert seeking anonymity told this scribe. He said The crash site is a no-go area for the airplanes and does not fall in the approach or take-off path. A pilot on condition of not to be named said it looked purely a human error as the pilot had availed two chances to land on Islamabad Airport, contrary to the two PIA flights: One coming from Karachi, the other from China; which were diverted to Lahore due to poor weather conditions. The pilot, Pervaiz Iqbal Ch, was making a second attempt to land when his plane rammed into the hill and he failed to bring the flight up to the required height. Sources say that the visibility was 350 metres while wind was blowing at the speed of 18 knot and the temperature had been recorded at 25C, when the incident took place. According to the sources, the pilot was a religious minded person and he might have remained busy, worshipping the whole night, which was Shab-e-Barat. He had a long beard and was very much committed to the prayers and religious duties, they added. It is worth mentioning that pilots representative body, PALPA, just a day before the crash, had pointed out the violation of air safety regulations by Flight Operations Directorate of PIA as the management was compelling the pilots to fly longer than internationally laid down rules, thus putting passengers safety at a risk. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) must take notice of these violations before it is too late, said a PALPA office-bearer. He said that continuous violations of air safety rules would not only affect the sanctity of aviation industry in Pakistan but would also damage the safety record of the national flag carrier as well. Furthermore, the co-pilot of the plane was also on his second flight only. The CAA should not allow the pilots of over 60 years of age to fly planes as age factor slows down the mental faculty and reflex actions, said a doctor serving in the CAA. He said that in the countries where age relaxation had been awarded to the pilots, health conditions were comparatively better and the pilots had no health problems.
