Florida Pilot Sentenced for Falsifying FAA Airman Medical Applications
On May 22, 2014, in U.S District Court, Miami, Florida, Henry Albert Schaller, II, President of B2BJETS, Inc., was sentenced to two years probation for making false statements to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Schaller lied on multiple airman's medical applications in an effort to obtain a medical certification, by stating he had never been convicted of a crime. However, the investigation revealed that he was convicted in April 2013 for making a false statement to Immigrations and Customs Enforcement.
In addition to the term of probation, Schaller was fined $500.00 and ordered to pay a special assessment fee of $500.00. As a special condition of supervised release, Schaller was ordered not to operate an aircraft in the United States or any other country without a valid pilot's license and medical certificate from the FAA.
This investigation was conducted jointly with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), with assistance from the Federal Aviation Administration.
