Florida Man Jailed for Piloting Plane Without an Airman Certificate

Donald Wilson was sentenced to a 15-month prison term by a U.S. District Court judge in Fort Lauderdale, FL, for piloting a plane 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. He also modified a plane by installing fuel-tank systems without making the change according to FAA maintenance regulations.
