Iowa Man Pleads Guilty to Falsifying His Pilot Flight Log

On May 4, 2012, Fahad Naabeel Hussein Al-Daous pleaded guilty in the U.S. District Court of Iowa, Southern District, to one count of falsifying his flight log book.

On May 21 and May 27, 2011, Mr. Al-Daous submitted a false Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) form 8710-1 to an FAA Designated Pilot Examiner, stating he had enough pilot in command flight hours and enough cross country flight hours for his instrument-rated pilot's license, when in fact, he did not.

This investigation was worked in cooperation with the FAA, FBI and the U.S. Attorney's Office.
