Jet Airways pilots urge aviation ministry to 'involve them' in new set of rules and regulations

Jet Airways' domestic pilots union, National Aviator's Guild (NAG), has urged the Civil Aviation Ministry to involve all stakeholders while formulating rules and regulations concerning the pilots.

In a meeting of its Delhi-based members held in the national capital on Saturday, the NAG also expressed hope that its inputs on the Directorate General of Civil Aviation's (DGCA) proposal to extend the job leaving notice period to one year for commanders, from the present six months, will be given "due consideration", a source said.

The NAG pilots, along with those from Indian Pilots Guild and Indian Commercial Pilots Association (ICPA), are at loggerheads with the aviation regulator DGCA over the issue of extension in notice period. They are opposed to any change in the current regulations.
