FAA Statement Regarding the Emergency Revocation of the Airman
Certificate of Hayden L. Sheaffer, Pilot of the Cessna 150 Aircraft
that Violated the National Capital Region's Restricted Airspace on
May 11, 2005
The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) on Friday evening issued an emergency
revocation of the airman certificate of Hayden L. Sheaffer, who was
the pilot in command of the small Cessna 150 aircraft that violated
the restricted airspace around the nation's capital on Wednesday,
May 11, 2005. A copy of the emergency order has been released
pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act request.
Mr. Sheaffer will be required to
surrender his certificate immediately to the FAA and will not be
permitted to fly for a minimum of one year. At the conclusion of
one year, Mr. Sheaffer may apply for a new certificate, which may
be issued only if he passes a written and a practical test. Mr.
Sheaffer has a right to make an immediate appeal to the National
Transportation Safety Board.
The FAA has determined that no action is warranted against the
aircraft's passenger, who holds a student pilot certificate.
