The Karachi Aero Club (KAC), a flying training organization based in Karachi, Pakistan had their graduation ceremony today for commercial pilots.
Senior aviation officials were in attendance from the national airlines and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). After speeches, the graduating pilots were presented with shields to commemorate the completion of their commercial pilots license.
KAC, celebrating its 90th year of promoting aviation, was established on the 28th of July, 1928 and is the Indian subcontinent’s first flying institution. It was formed by an association of persons whose common goal was to instruct and train members of the club and others in the art of flying and the science of aeronautics. Private Pilot, Commercial Pilot and Instrument Rating courses are available. The KAC operates a fleet of 3 Cessna training aircraft, namely the Cessna 150, Cessna 152 and Cessna 172.
The KAC had two of their aircraft displayed at the venue as well. The one pictured above was built in 1961 and delivered brand new to Karachi Aero Club. Its current condition, as can be seen above, is a testament to their maintenance facility and teams.
Ever since its inception, the KAC has worked ceaselessly towards the promotion of all branches of aviation and has established itself as a center of information and advice on all matters pertaining to aeronautics. It is based at the General Aviation Area at Jinnah International Airport, Karachi.
