Does anyone know what has happened to the Airtours Pilot that allegedley forged his logbook,and made false claims about his flying experience in order to gain employment as a pilot?

Are the CAA going to prosecute him? It's all gone very quiet. :confused:

Airtours washed their hands of him about 2 months ago. Last I heard the case was heard by local magistrates court who referred it to crown court. If found guilty then could face max sentance of 2 years behind bars!! Prosecution is being led by CAA but haven't heard what BALPA opinion is of the story.

Allegedly, court action pending. Airtours to recover bond and other costs from said scribe. ;)

If only more biro pilots were bought to justice.

Or we could realise that:

H = A

is an invalid equation.

(Where H = hours in log book and A = ability).

There's nothing worse than watching a guy with 10,000 hours screw up something easy in the simulator, except perhaps watching him make a mess of the re-fly. I honestly wonder how these people sleep at night?

So true northern sky, but doesn't justify wilful falsification of a log book, experience, ability or otherwise.

Agreed, of course.

But if the employers sat up and looked at the highly variable quality of the people flying their aeroplanes, and assessed ability properly, and recruited to the correct criteria, there'd be hardly any need to mention log book hours during the recruitment process.

Granted though that anyone who falsifies their record should be permanently stripped of their licence.
