Nebraska Pilot Sentenced to 16 Months Imprisonment for Making False Statements on his Application for FAA Airmen Medical Certificate

On August 27, 2008, James Charlton Davis was sentenced in U.S. District Court, Omaha, Nebraska, to 16 months imprisonment and 36 months supervised release for submitting a fraudulent statement on a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) application for his Airmen Medical Certificate. The DOT/OIG investigation revealed that Mr. Davis answered negative to a question regarding his history of non–traffic conviction(s) and provided a false social security number and a false date of birth on his application in June 2005. Mr. Davis subsequently pled guilty to making a fraudulent statement. The plea agreement required Mr. Davis to voluntarily surrender his Private pilot Certificate to the FAA. Mr. Davis also agreed that he would not apply for any type of FAA certificate during his lifetime. This investigation was conducted by DOT/OIG, with assistance from FAA.
