SCORES of Chinese airline pilots faked their qualifications, the country’s aviation body admitted.
The Civil Aviation Administration of China said 192 pilots had jobs for which they did not have the necessary experience.
It said it had “severely dealt with the situation” when discovered in 2008.
A report this week said 103 of the pilots were employed by Shenzhen Airlines, the parent company of the carrier involved in an August 24 crash, which killed 42.
