Visit of the President of Pakistan Farooq Ahmed Khan Leghari to PIA Precision Engineering Complex (PEC) at Karachi Airport on January 6, 1994. Managing Director PIA Air Vice Marshal Farooq Umar and Director PEC Air Vice Marshal Sardar Khan also seen in the picture. PEC's function was first to manufacture and overhaul miscellaneous aircraft items for PIA, but it has grown into an enterprise which now performs manufacturing subcontracts for customers which include Boeing, General Electric, Airbus, Hispano Suiza, Saab and Snecma. The components produced are relatively basic, but, for example, they include undercarriage webs and wing components for Boeing and oil seals for Snecma - flight-critical items produced to the most demanding specifications
