Insurance covers theft.

This was UNBELIEVABLY STUPID. Certainly Darwin Award material.

1. The student pilot did not have a license

2. As a student pilot he was expressly forbidden to carry passengers (unless someone else was acting as pilot in command)

3. Didn't have a multiengine rating (probably had never flown anything other than a single before)

4. Had no IFR rating (he could only safely fly when he could see the horizon)

5. Took off AT NIGHT (which ratchets everything up a notch) with a low overcast ceiling.

It is absolutely no surprise whatsoever that he almost immediately lost control and crashed. Sad that he took two other teenagers with him.

ETA - I see they changed the story now. Sorry but I don't fully believe the mom. This was stupid no matter what.

quote:

The plane had departed from the small airport around 10:30 p.m. in overcast skies and a low cloud ceiling, airport manager Edwin Banks said.


I doubt the aircraft owner gave the kid permission to joy fly at 10:30 at night.

There was a kid in our area that had been playing flying games on a computer and decided to steal a plane from a local airport. He took off flew aound and landed with no problem once. He then took off again and then botched the landing. he did survive though. Pretty crazy he was able to even start the damn thing having never been in a plane before.

One of my parent's best friends had his own single engine plane that he kept at his house in the country. I flew in that plane many times and they are not difficult to start at all. I grew up on a farm and was always around farm equipment. Starting an airplane is not any harder than starting a tractor.
