Aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on Monday suspended the licences of two SpiceJet pilots for one year for overshooting the main runway at Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport which shut down runway 09/27 for 90 hours earlier this month.
 A senior DGCA official said the two pilots – Capt Ajinkya Hanchate and Capt Tushar Dasgupta – have also been asked to undergo corrective training after a preliminary probe by a DGCA team indicated that their final landing approach was unstabilised and the Boeing 737 aircraft touched down at high speed, approximately 1600 metres from the runway threshold, consuming half of runway 27.
The official said after one year suspension, Dasgupta would fly as first officer for six months or for 300 hours, whichever is earlier.
 The incident took place on July 1when a SpiceJet aircraft, SG-6237, operating from Jaipur to Mumbai tried to land amid heavy rain and veered off the runway.
