ISLAMABAD: Muhammad Fayyaz, the resident of Arifwala from Pakpattan district, received his homemade plane back from the police authorities on Thursday.

Fayyaz, a popcorn seller and a security guard by profession, with his savings and a bank loan of Rs50,000 made a small aircraft. 

The police arrested him and confiscated his plane during the trial run at an open field on March 31. The man was later released by the local court after Rs3,000 charge.

The plane was returned to him on the direction of DPO Pakpattan Maria Mahmood. Fayyaz expressed his pleasure on getting his plane back.

Sources have informed that a Civil Aviation Authorities delegation will inspect his plane tomorrow.

Naseem Ahmed, a CAA expert, earlier told Geo News that the CAA laws are very much clear that Pakistani airspace cannot be used by any air machine without due permission.

“There needs to be approval. It’s for their own good for their safety. What if God forbid the plane crashes with any building. Ignorance cannot be used as an excuse,” he added.
