NEW DELHI: The aviation regulator has suspended the flying licence of a senior commander for allowing a non-pilot to take the co-pilot’s seat during a long domestic flight on a private luxury aircraft.

The commander reportedly asked the co-pilot, who was supposed to fly with him, to get up from the seat and let an aircraft maintenance engineer be there without even disengaging the controls on that side.
