SYED MOHAMMAD HUSAIN
Captain B707 Retired, PIA
I came into flying at a very early age of 15 when I went solo and earned my' wings' in a Sedberg Glider at Sargodha Pakistan. In words of my school principal, Mr. Hugh Catchpole OBE," it was in an unusually short time." That experience helped when PIA advertised for pilot trainees, and I got in, and soloed first in my group of trainees in a Cessna 150. This led to a career as a flag airline pilot, and later captain. I have flown worldwide with the airline as captain and copilot, should we say, from coast to coast, from Tokyo and Singapore to Boston and JFK, on aircraft of my era, the B707&,747-200. I retired as a simulator instructor and left the airline on migration to Canada in 1998.
