Court stays order grounding 11 GMR pilots


Providing relief to non-scheduled charter flight operator GMR Aviation, the Delhi High Court Monday stayed the aviation regulator DGCA’s order grounding 11 of its pilots for allegedly flouting with mandatory pre-flight medical checks.

Justice Manmohan, staying the April 16 order of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation’s (DGCA), gave breather to the airline whose fleet are being used by key politicians to carry out their ongoing poll campaign.

The court, allowing the airline to resume its flight operations, said: “Prima facie, there is a lot of carelessness on their (GMR Aviation) part but no ill intent.”
