Message from Captain M.A. Khan Son of Nawab Mohammad Ahmad Khan

Unfortunately I could not continue at T. I. College for the completion my Fsc as I had to shift to Lahore for my Flying training with Lahore flying School (Club).
I appeared privately for my Fsc.
I qualified as commercial pilot and obtained the Commercial Pilot’s license in 1967 from Lahore flying club Flying School and was taken in PIA same year.
In PIA in the nitial trainig phase I qualified and obtained ATP license (Airline transport pilot rating)
Although I was never a bright student at college but my performance on the professional side has always been outstanding. During my 35 years of service in Pakistan International Airlines as a pilot I have always been utilized as an instructor pilot.
When CAA Pakistan (Civil Aviation Authority of Pakistan) established flight inspectorate I was the first one to be appointed as their Flight Inspector on Air buss A300 aircraft, I was latter appointed as CAA flight inspector on Boeing 747 aircraft upon my promotion on that equipment. I have been in the management as Chief Pilot Planning Scheduling & Coordination for almost seven and a half years, the longest period any pilot in PIA has ever been on a management post. I retired as a Boeing 747 captain on Dec.16 2002.
If required I may send some of my pictures taken on and after my last flight in PIA. With this mail two pictures are being attached herewith.

1. My picture 2. The picture with Boeing 747 has a caption “this is the aircraft I fly” this Post Card was made when I was still in service.
Best regards,
Captain M.A.Khan (Rtd)

Note: I am very grateful to our friend Hamid Ahmad Khan, who has motivated his younger brother to send his photo and the above note. Mahmood has sent the photograph below to put on record his unforgettable association with PIA. I am sorry for the poor quality of the photo, which is due to my lack of expertise in the field.- Hamid Ahmad Chaudhry
