Georgia Pilot Sentenced for Making A False Statement on his FAA Airman Medical Certificate

On August 3, 2011, William G. Bartlett, a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified commercial pilot, was sentenced to three years probation, fined $5,000, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment for making false statements to the FAA related to his applications for an FAA Airman Medical Certificate. 

The U.S. Department of Transportation Office of Inspector General investigation revealed that in 2006, 2007, and 2008, Mr. Bartlett falsified his medical certificates to conceal prior convictions involving driving while intoxicated and the revocation of his driving privileges. 

This investigation was conducted jointly with FAA Security.
