Software glitch ‘fails’ Indian pilots

This from the Hindustan Times: Two days after the poor pass percentage in the written tests shocked thousands of student pilots and co-pilots aspiring to become commanders, the aviation safety regulator that conducts the nationwide examination said the results posted on its website were inaccurate owing to a software glitch. The story notes that according to the incorrect results, less than 4% of the 4,000 candidates that appeared for the commercial pilots license (CPL) examination passed, while all the 1,000-odd first officers appearing for the Airline Transport Pilot License (ALTP), or the license to operate flights as a commander, failed in all the subjects.
