Vermont Man Charged With Flying Without an Airman’s Certificate
On April 26, 2018, Angelo Efthimiatos was indicted in U.S. District Court, District of Vermont, on one count of knowingly and willfully serving as an airman when he did not have an airman’s certificate.
According to the indictment, on April 9, 2018, Efthimiatos knowingly and willfully piloted a Piper aircraft with tail number N4563F from Nantucket, Massachusetts, to North Clarendon, Vermont, although his pilot certificate had been revoked by FAA on July 1, 2014. The revocation order advised Efthimiatos that his airman’s certificate had been permanently revoked and that FAA would not accept future applications for certificates from him.
DOT-OIG is investigating this case with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, FAA, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
