Sibley made the flights by fraudulently claiming to have authorization under the certificate number of an approved Air Taxi Operator based out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It is also alleged that Sibley operated as the pilot in command of an aircraft that traveled from Orlando, Florida, to California without the required rating for this type aircraft, and that he failed to disclose his criminal history on an FAA application for an airman medical certificate.
