A man named Muhammad Fayyaz in Arifwala was arrested by the Police officials on Monday for flying a plane which is manufactured by himself.
He was a popcorn seller and a security guard. With the help of 50,000 of the bank loan and his personal savings, he has managed to make a plane. He was arrested on the charge of flying the plane in open fields during a test run without the permission of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
He has given a statement to Geo News in which he has said that “I made the aircraft with my hard work. My plane can fly till 1000 feet. Give me one chance so that I can prove that I am a patriotic Pakistani. I informed every department but no one responded to me.”
Naseem Ahmed the CAA expert has said that “no air plane will be allowed to fly in the Pakistani airspace without permission.”
He further stated that “There needs to be approval. It’s for their own good for their safety. What if God forbid the plane crashes with any building. Ignorance cannot be used as an excuse.”
