This particular prize prick of the aviation world, who tried to demonstrate his skills as a penguin to his hapless bird watcher pax, was finally awarded with his just reward. That is despite his Sully act.

He was an ex-con, courtesy of CAA.

Here is his previous conviction:
"ROBERT MURGATROYD T/A FLYBPL.COM G-BBEF crashed in Switzerland on 14 October 2011. The aircraft’s last Airworthiness Review Certificate had expired on 30 August 2011. G-BBEF had made 28 flights, including instructional flights, in the 44 days after the ARC expired, totalling 21.27 hours of flying time. Robert Murgatroyd trading as FlyBpl.com was the registered owner of G-BBEF. Robert Murgatroyd trading as Flybpl.com pleaded guilty to: 1. Operating G-BBEF on 28 flights without an ARC (Part M.A.902(b) of Commission Regulation (EC) No. 2042/2003 and Article 241(7) of the Air Navigation Order 2009). 18/06/2014 Blackpool Magistrates’ Court 1. Fine 333" . From the CAA Prosecution Results.

Blackpool magistrates who tried him for his part in the crash of G-BBEF, heard:
"The court heard that Murgatroyd had four previous convictions after being prosecuted by the CAA.These included illegally operating public transport flights". Source :https://www.wave965.com/news/local/p...en-in-the-air/
