Former FAA Employee Convicted of Lying on his Airman Medical Exams

David J. Kuraner, of Haymarket, VA, a former FAA electronic engineer, was convicted in U.S. District Court, in Alexandria, VA, for falsely stating on his Airman Medical Examinations in 1996, 1998, and 2000 that he had no health problems when, in fact, he suffered from a problem that would have disqualified him from flying. Prior to the investigation, the FAA administratively removed Kuraner from his position in September 2000 because he failed to report for work. He is scheduled to be sentenced on April 19.
