Pilot Air India Caught Drunk Right before the Plane Take-Off to London
An Indian pilot is caught with alcohol one hour before his flight. That was manifest from two breath examinations that he had to undergo, reports Air India. It was a flight to London from New Delhi.
Arvind Kathpalia suffers his flying license for three years because of the occurrence. He is not only a pilot but also a member of the board of the airline. Kathpalia is involved in common flight procedures.
It is the subsequent time that Kathpalia gets into a problem with alcohol. In 2017 he was suspended for three months, ostensibly for refusing breath tests.
Airlines conduct regular tests worldwide. Earlier this month, a pilot of Japan Airlines was caught with too much alcohol. He had two bottles of wine and five cans of beer before flying from London to Tokyo.
