Federation Of Indian Pilots Disappointed Over The Portrayal Of Pilots In ‘Runway 34’, Say It’s Unrealistic; Checkout!
Ajay Devgn’s ‘Runway 34’ has received mixed reviews from the audience. According to people the only positives about the film are Ajay Devgn and the movie’s suspenseful nature. Ajay Devgn fans are in for a treat as not only Ajay is playing the main character but also is the director of the film. Although there is a section of people who weren’t as thrilled as others who watched the movie.
The people who were disappointed belong to the Federation of Indian Pilots. This is not a good sign as a movie that was supposed to pay tribute to pilots has hurt pilots. The aviation training institute released a statement that said “Recently, a Hindi movie has been released with the title “Runway 34.” The profession of airline pilots has been unrealistically portrayed in the movie and may create apprehensions in the minds of nervous fliers”.
It added, “While we all enjoy being entertained and appreciate the artistic license of a movie director, a thrilling tale should not be perceived as a true depiction of the extraordinary professionalism among airline pilots who perform thousands of flights every day responsibly and safely without incident and fanfare.”
“There are more than eight thousand pilots in India who embody the highest possible standards of accountability, training and professionalism. The skills of every pilot are honed to a degree rarely seen in any industry. These standards are borne out every day, as pilots are entrusted with the lives of millions of passengers and expensive equipment around the world.”
To conclude it stated, “It is reiterated that the character in the movie does not accurately represent our profession and that the industry has a zero-tolerance policy towards deviant behavior and substance abuse. Our pilots are committed to abide by the highest standards of professionalism to honour the trust reposed in us by our employers, the aviation regulator and the public at large.”
