Florida Man Indicted for Flying Without a Certificate
A U.S. District Court in Orlando, Fla., indicted Reginald Wayne Sibley, Jr., on November 20 for operating an aircraft without an airman’s certificate, as well as for making false statements on an FAA medical application. Sibley is the registered owner of Orlando-based Intelijet Air. The indictment alleges that Sibley fraudulently received $26,133 for operating passenger flights without an FAA operating certificate. Sibley reportedly made the flights by fraudulently claiming to be part of an approved certificate of a charter operator in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The indictment also alleges Sibley operated an aircraft for which he was not rated as the pilot-in-command on a trip between Florida and California.
