FAA investigates pilot after insane stunt flyby video goes viral

Pilot Jason Newber being investigated after FAA takes notice of viral video

| Current Affairs News | Posted: Jan 24, 2013 6:20 pm

In the past people have landed in hot water after their video went "viral" on YouTube. This is certainly the case for pilot Jason Newburg who was recently seen making a 200+ MPH low altitude pass that came with in mere feet of the person holding the camera.

 

 

FAA regulations clearly state that "no person may operate an aircraft in a careless or reckless manner so as to endanger the life or property of another." In the video above, you can see that the pilot's plane came within feet of a pedestrian on an ATV and within a few feet of the person shooting the video.

Newberg was granted a waiver for practicing daring maneuvers by the FFA, which most likely was valid at the time of the incident. "Even with a waiver, there a requirement that people on the ground not be endangered," said FAA spokesman Lynn Lunsford. Newberg in defense said, "this was a structured shoot, and some people don't understand that."
