FAA Revoked A&P Mechanic And Pilot Certificates On Fraudulent Aircraft Repairs
January 30, 2015 - On January 22, 2015, Clive Felix Ure of Leesburg, Florida, was sentenced in U.S. District Court, Ocala, Florida, to 12 months incarceration and two years supervised release for falsifying airworthiness documentation on a Cessna 337 propeller.

Ure was also ordered to pay almost $68,000 in restitution to a private pilot and a flight school for failure to properly overhaul aircraft engines. Additionally, Ure was required to divest himself of any interest in his business and not to engage in any other business related to maintenance, repair, or the sale of aircraft or aircraft parts.

Ure, a certified Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airframe and Powerplant mechanic and owner of Aircraft Maintenance & Repair, Leesburg, Florida, sold the un-airworthy propeller via eBay to a customer in Oregon.
Prior to selling the propeller, an FAA certified repair station informed Ure the propeller was no longer safe for flight. However, Ure utilized another repair station's information to falsify a logbook entry and approved the propeller for return to service. Ure sent the buyer a log book with a false entry showing the overhaul.

"He also stamped a false serial number on the propeller because the true serial number had been obliterated by the propeller repair station, at the direction of the FAA'' court document reported.

The FAA revoked Ure's mechanic and pilot certificates for life based on his criminal conviction. Ure at one time was a member of the Leesburg International Airport Advisory Board.
