    Civil Aviation and Safety Authority reveal commercial pilots have been using cheat sheets in Air Transport Pilot Licence exams;

    (title was too long to enter into 'title' section)

    COMMERCIAL pilots have been caught cheating on essential safety exams because the regulator has not changed the tests for 20 years.

    Pilots have been emailing and printing out the answers to the exams and secretly pasting them into textbooks allowed into the mandatory tests.

    The rort came to light in the prosecution of a Queensland-based pilot who was banned from flying after the Civil Aviation and Safety Authority (CASA) found he had emailed the answers to another pilot.

    The ban was overturned on appeal but the allegations made by prosecutors raise fears of widespread cheating because the watchdog failed to regularly change the exam questions, making it easy for pilots to take "coded" answers into open book exams.
