KARACHI: Graduation ceremony of No 65 Flight Safety Officers’ Course was held at PAF Base, Masroor, says a press release issued here on Friday.
Vice Chief of the Air Staff of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) Air Marshal Syed Athar Hussain Bukhari was the chief guest on the occasion and awarded certificates to the successful participants.
Squadron Leader Asad Khan bagged the Chief of the Air Staff Best Graduate’s Trophy for the best performance in the course. Trophy for the Best Group Research Paper on the topic (Understand Spin) was given to Squadron Leader M Talha Saeed, Squadron Leader Usman Qamar and Squadron Leader Asad Khan.
Officers from the Pakistan Air Force, army, navy and friendly countries including Bangladesh, Iraq, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Sudan and Nigeria attended the course.
Emphasizing upon the importance of safety, Air Marshal Syed Athar Hussain Bukhari said: “In the recent years the need to instil aviation safety management has become a necessity, not just because of the complexity of aviation, but also because it has become extremely expensive and the losses are becoming unaffordable. Even though its premiums in terms of cost may seem high, but the dividends in terms of preservation of valuable lives, aircraft and equipment are immeasurable.”
Earlier on his arrival at the base, Air Marshal Syed Athar Hussain Bukhari was received by Officer Commanding of the Institute of Air Safety Air Commodore Noor Elahi Bajwa.
