Indian DGCA, safety - Mr. Hamid Ali, Jet Airways

The Indian DGCA have little interest in safety. If they did, they would not have approved the appointment of Mr. Hamid Ali, to the Post Holder position of Chief Operating Officer of Jet Airways.

Mr. Hamid Ali was the A320 Chief Pilot at Gulf Air when a perfectly serviceable A320 was flown into the Persian Gulf killing all on board.

The ICAO report found:
"A lack of a crew resources management (CRM) training programme; inadequacy in some of the airline’s A320 flight crew training programmes; problems in the airline’s flight data analysis system and flight safety department which were not functioning satisfactorily; organisational and management issues within the airline"

The ICAO report avaialble to the PUBLIC can be found at the following link:

GF072 Final Report (at the page, click on blue sub-sections to view)

Additonally, the BBC reported:
"The chief pilot of Gulf Air's Airbus A320 fleet, Captain Hamid Ali, has previously rejected reports that pilot error was behind the crash"

The link to the BBC report avaialble to the PUBLIC is:

When Jet Airways first began operating the B777, expat pilots were flying trips as PIC without ever having passed a company simulator check and/or line check.
