Gentlemen,

For the record, the real hero is one of the Sri Lankan pilots (who volunteered to revamp and update the CAASL) He was concerned. So he asked the DG what the story was with regards to the AOC for the SLAF. He was curtly told to go and ask the SLAF! He then threatened to complain to the AG.

The Chicago Convention does not cover three categories. of state aircraft (1) Military (2) Customs and lastly (3) Police. They cannot be granted AOCs.

I believe this pilot’s query started the ball rolling. The CAASL was slow off the mark.. The Nation is full of ‘Yes men.’ This is very refreshing. The Pilot has to remain nameless for obvious reasons!
