Thailand to ease pilot qualifications to help airlines

The Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand's (CAAT) board has agreed to revise the criteria for military pilots looking to make a switch to commercial airlines, said CAAT's director Chula Sukmanop.
He said military pilots and those who fly for state-run agencies will be required under the new rules to complete 200 hours of flying commercial transport planes to obtain a licence to fly commercial airliners.
The current rule requires that applicants seeking to fly for a commercial airliner clock have logbooks with 1,500 hours.
