Then it dawned on me: Since when, honesty & telling the truth has become so uncommon that it now commands awe & respect ? :oops:

I don’t think it is uncommon for a typical person, and I didn’t say anything about awe.

But when large amounts of money (such as an insurance claim for a totaled aircraft) are involved some people tend to cover up details that don’t support their case.

Based on the character, professionalism, and love for his family he has shown in his videos…none of his response is a surprise. He is clearly a man of integrity. I have made my fair share of mistakes both in aircraft and out. Hopefully, he shares more; and we can all become better pilots and owners from his experience.


I agree completely - seems like a good guy and a good family, which is mainly why I chimed in on the whole “insurance will deny this stupidity” issue. It’s such a Terrible thing to have happen in any circumstance.

That may be, but he clearly does not hold the skills nor the license to safely & legally work on aircraft.


Here's a little exercise for y'all : What would you think of a non-pilot that goes out and flies a plane into the ground, LUCKILY not killing himself or anyone else ?

It's happened, and I never saw any posts like " such a nice guy ... it's such a terrible thing... "

The truth be told, you guys would BURY the non-pilot that would be so stupid and reckless to do such a thing !

So gentlemen, I ask: What's the difference between this Airman's actions and the non-pilot that crashes a plane ?

IMHO, objectively, this person recklessly violated the FARs endangering himself and others in doing so. Period.

I have no idea what he was doing. It could’ve been totally within his owner maintenance purview. He could’ve been supervised by an A&P. I certainly think that owning the mistake points to integrity so whatever it was we’ll probably eventually find out.

Thanks Tom. Yeah it is a good thing that our insurance covers us when we Violate a FAR, a reg, the POH or the FAA pilots book of aeronautical knowledge, because that would be most aircraft incidents and accidents. Be a hard sell to a bank as well to insure an asset if the insurance company could back out of protecting them on a whim. I will do my best to keep making my insurance company money, but if I ever do tag them, probably will be for some lapse on my part that will have led to the bent metal.


Very good point Chuck - usually what bites guys in your class of equipment related to filing an insurance claim is FOD - and frankly it oftentimes goes undetected until a hot section or pre-buy when you go to sell. So sometimes the best, safest and most proficient operators out there have to call on their insurance contracts for something that may go undetected during their ownership cycle with the airplane. (I'm knocking on wood as I type this!) :cheers:
