Indonesian Student Pilot Attempts To Bribe Flight Examiner

Offered Crystal Meth In Exchange For Pilot Certificate

A pilot trainee and a flight examiner in Jakarta, Indonesia have been arrested in connection with an attempt by the trainee to bribe the examiner to obtain a pilot certificate.

The Jakarta Post relays a report from wartakota.tribunnews.com which indicates that the trainee, identified as GS, offered the examiner, identified as BC in the report, 0.8 grams of crystal methamphetamine in exchange for passing marks on his tests.

Jakarta Police narcotics unit chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Jean Calvijn Simanjuntak said on Sunday that "“BC is an examiner in a flight school that has the authority to issue pilot’s licenses." Simanjuntak said that BC is a civil servant at the Transportation Ministry’s Air Transportation Directorate General. "He plays an important role throughout that process. GS [the pilot] allegedly attempted to bribe BC, so that he could pass all the tests,” he said.

Both were arrested at Halim Perdanakusuma Airport in East Jakarta on August 2.

To obtain a pilot certificate in Indonesia, a trainee must graduate from a flight school, apply to an airline and pass several tests: theory, simulator and real flight.
