The managing director of Aerojet Corporate–the Lyon, France-based executive charter operator caught with 1,500 pounds of cocaine aboard a Falcon 50 in March in the Dominican Republic–has been imprisoned. Pierre Dreyfus and a freelance pilot, Fabrice Alcaud, are now jailed in France, according to Lyon daily newspaper Le Progrès.
Australia’s Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) has dismissed a pilot who failed a drug test after reportedly passing out for 13 minutes while in command of a Beechcraft King Air 200 carrying a patient and nurse to Brisbane. The nurse eventually woke the pilot, who subsequently tested positive for methamphetamine. The pilot is believed to be the first RFDS pilot ever dismissed over a drug-related issue.
