Our pilots not capable of flying aircraft given by India: Maldives | India News



MALE: Maldives military still does not have pilots capable of operating three aircraft donated by India, defence minister Ghassan Maumoon acknowledged Sunday, days after 76 Indian defence personnel left the island nation at the instance of Prez Mohamed Muizzu.
Ghassan made the remarks while briefing the media about the withdrawal of Indian soldiers stationed in Maldives to operate two helicopters and a Dornier aircraft and their replacement with civilians from India.“As it was a training that required passing various stages, our soldiers had not reached completion due to various reasons. Therefore, there aren’t any people licensed to fly the aircraft,” Ghassan said.
