FAA Takes Right Action Against Pilots in Recent Stunts
The Flight Safety Detectives take on two recent events where pilot stunts led to FAA to revoke their pilot certificates. Pilots are counted on for solid decision making and judgement. The FAA found that pilots failed in their duty to fly safely.
The FAA took the action when pilots Andy Farrington and Luke Aikins conducted a stunt for Red Bull that had been denied. In the other incident, Trevor Jacobs was penalized for staging a crash.
Greg, John and Todd share insight into where these pilots went astray. They talk about ways that they could have gotten online attention without jeopardizing safety.
“In the aviation industry we work to make every flight safe” Greg says. “These guys threatened aviation safety for no good reason.”
The detectives support the strong message sent by the FAA actions.
