PIA is Getting an Advanced Flight Control System from Turkey

After the recent crash of the unfortunate Airbus A320 that martyred at least 97 people including the entire plane crew, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has decided to overhaul the flight operations control system to avoid such happenings.

PIA’s ill-fated domestic flight PK-8303 from Lahore to Karachi, which crashed just a few kilometers away from the destination, reportedly developed a technical fault before the accident.

Initial investigations have revealed that its landing gear failed to open in time that caused the plane to land on its bottom during the botched landing attempt, dragging both engines on the runway. The incident caused both engines to catch fire, which resultantly translated into the fatal crash.

However, the PIA management is now eying to import a state of the art air flight operations system from a Turkey-based IT company.

The new system will also help monitor departure and arrival flights easily.

      Lame Excuses

      • Every Dignified and Self Reliant country ( excluding Pakistan ofcourse) only develop their own Security and critical Systems. Americans, Europeans, Indians, Israelis only rely on their own Command, Control and Monitoring Systems.
        Don’t compare the civilian work with the military technologies and technologies of critical nature.

        Anyway most of the Pakistanis don’t know the word “dignity” and “Self Reliance”. A slave nation will never understand these points.

  • Stupid and incorrect reporting. How do you know Landing Gear failed to open? If that was the case why did the pilot attempt to land without declaring an emergency. Atleast have some sense into what you write.
