Pilot Sentenced For Making False Statements In His FAA Flight Logbook
 
By Steve Hall
 

August 23, 2012 - Fahad Nabeel Hussein Al-Daous, 33, from Waterloo, Iowa, appeared in federal court in Des Moines to be sentenced after his plea of guilty one count of making false statements to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Al-Daous was sentenced to a 4 year term of probation and required to pay a $100 special assessment.

The conditions of probation included a prohibition on applying for any pilot’s licenses or piloting any aircraft. In a plea agreement, Al-Daous admitted falsely inflating the number of flight hours listed on instrument-rated pilot’s license applications he filed in Ottumwa, Iowa, on May 21 and May 27, 2011.

Al-Daous also entered false information into his flight log, both before and after his May applications. The false statements in Al-Daous’s flight log were uncovered when he applied for a commercial pilot training program in September 2011. 

 

Back on January 24, 2012, a Grand Jury (United States Of America v. Fahad Nabeel Hussein Al-Daous, criminal No. :12-CR-005) charged Fahad Nabeel Hussein Al-Daous with Count 1 - (False Statement to the Federal Aviation Administration). 

On or about May 21, 2011, in the Southern District of Iowa and elsewhere, in a matter within the jurisdiction of the Federal Aviation Administration, an agency of the United States, Fahad Nabeel Hussein Al-Daous, did knowingly and willfully make and cause to be made a false, fraudulent, and fictitious material statement and representation; that is, in an Airman Certificate and/or Rating Application (FAA Form 8710-1), Al-Daous falsely inflated the number of Pilot in Command flight hours and Cross Country Pilot in Command flight hours he had completed. This is a violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001 (a)(2).

COUNT 2 - (False Statement to the Federal Aviation Administration) on or about May 27, 2011, Fahad Nabeel Hussein Al-Daous, did knowingly and willfully make and cause to be made a false, fraudulent, and fictitious material statement and representation; that is, in an Airman Certificate and/or Rating Application (FAA Form 8710-1), Fahad Nabeel Hussein Al-Daous falsely inflated the number of Pilot in Command flight hours and Cross Country Pilot in Command flight hours he had completed. 

 

 

This case was investigated by the United States Department of Transportation Office of Inspector General and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
