In an attempt to reduce the number of Indian airline captains leaving the country to fly for foreign carriers, India’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) has begun combing pilot records for compliance errors. The DGAC requires that all pilots leaving their Indian airline positions in order to join foreign airlines must give a full six-month notice before flying anywhere else. The DGAC says pilots found to be in violation of the six-month rule could be subject to certificate revocation.
