Falsifying his record of PIC hours has landed a private pilot in
Waterloo, IA ... who maintains dual citizenship in Saudi Arabia ...
in hot water with authorities.
The Associated Press reports that Fahad Nabeel Hussein Al-Daous
has been accused of reporting far more than his actual hours as
pilot in command on two FAA applications for an instrument
certificate. He has pleaded not guilty to two counts of making
false statements to the FAA.
Al-Daous was ordered to surrender his Saudi passport and
released on the condition that he not try to leave Iowa before his
scheduled April trial.
