Pilots: they’re sometimes drunk, they’re sometimes lifesavers, but they always for some reason call themselves “captain.” Chinese pilots are no different. They are humans like the majority of people you know.
Apparently, back in 2008, nearly 200 Chinese pilots had lied on their resumés. Typically, if you apply for a job in China and you lie on your resumé, you are taken out back and executed, but the Glorious People’s Communist Paradise of China showed mercy on these errant aviators. In fact, a good amount of them were allowed to retrain and are back in the air flying today!
