Pilot Attains License After Having it Revoked for Flight Over Salisbury

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md. (AP) - Public records show the pilot of a US Airways flight was stripped of his flying certificate for a year after he lowered his plane to fly over his Maryland home in 2012. The pilot now has his license back.

An investigation into the incident took place Dec. 21, 2012. Documents reveal that the pilot, Edmund Draper, flew dangerously low over The Centre at Salisbury ,and his home, while landing a flight from Philadelphia. Draper was eligible to apply for a new certificate in January.

Draper now has his airline transport pilot certificate back. According to the Federal Aviation Administration registry, his airline transport pilot certificate was issued Feb. 25, 2014. Draper also has a flight instructor certificate, issued Feb. 26, 2014, according to the registry.

About 24 passengers and two crew members were aboard the flight operated by Piedmont Airlines.
 
Investigators found the pilot operated "with reckless disregard for safety," endangering passengers and the shopping mall. The Federal Aviation Administration revoked Draper's pilot certificate in June 2013.

Piedmont Airlines says Draper no longer works for them.
