Pilot Guilty of Obtaining License Under False Pretenses
January 29, 2004
Donald Wilson pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Miami, FL, to piloting aircraft without a legitimate airman certificate and flying a plane with an unapproved modification to its fuel system. Wilson used various fraudulent identities in order to obtain FAA licenses and falsely register an aircraft. In addition, Wilson modified a plane by installing fuel-tank systems without making the change according to FAA maintenance regulations. His sentencing is scheduled in April.
