    Default LAE Sentenced For False Licence Applications

    CAA News; Friday 23 August 2019
    Aircraft engineer given suspended prison sentence for lying about exams

    A 28 year-old man from Hounslow, West London, has been sentenced to 6 months imprisonment suspended for 12 months for falsely claiming to have passed engineering exams in order to carry out maintenance work on aircraft. Princepreet Sandhu appeared before Isleworth Crown Court on 21 August, following his conviction in June 2019.

    The Court heard that Mr Sandhu had been employed as an engineer by British Airways and twice submitted an application to have additional categories included on his licence, allowing him to carry out more complicated work on aircraft. His application to the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), which regulates Aircraft Engineer Licences, used forged exam certificates in support of his applications.

    The deception was spotted by British Airways and reported to the CAA. The CAA's Investigations & Enforcement Team worked with Airworthiness colleagues, and with the support of British Airways, to bring the case to court.

    NS Comment: Kudos to the eagle eyes that spotted the deception.

    Let’s just hope this is a one off. Obviously the guy won’t ever work in aviation again (hopefully) so just wonder how he’ll earn a crust now.
    Giz a job!

    I saw this thread on LinkedIn, there were some commentators which alarmingly imply that this is not an uncommon practise

    Chancers have been known to have a go in the past, but good rapport between QAMs and the CAA have always foiled the attempts. Also need the Part 147s to be alert.
