The Cockpit Con 

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

In other plane-related news, Thomas Salme had an expired commercial pilots’ license, but he was never properly certified to fly passenger planes. Apparently, that didn’t much matter. With a forged license, he was able to rack up 10,000 hours shuttling passengers over 13 years. He also had a flawless safety record.

Upon finally being caught, Salme’s punishment is to be banned from flying for one year and fined approximately $2500.
