Mentour Pilot on the Trevor Jacob “I crashed my airplane” Video

Perhaps we should conclude that an Olympic snowboard competitor may not be the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree when it comes to thinking through the consequences of his actions.


On 2022-04-11, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration revoked Trevor Jacob’s private pilot license for having performed this stunt.

A copy of the FAA letter is posted on AVweb, “FAA Revokes Certificate Of YouTuber Who Crashed Plane”. The revocation also prohibits reapplication for a new pilot license for a period of one year (really—just one year, after deliberately crashing an airplane in a wilderness area with high fire risk?).
