I did a search on the forums but couldn't find anything on this. Apparently this guy has a history of trouble with the FAA. I think the whole thing is pretty humorous myself.

Perhaps this time he won't be able to get his license reinstated? What are your opinions? I think he should be done, since he has a history of not following the rules. I also wonder how you can have sex in a helicopter while flying? He must be really talented, I suppose.

If this is in the wrong place feel free to move it.

Indeed. In helicopters, the stick needs constant manipulation.

In case the thread title changes, the title of this thread is currently: "Tommy Lee's Pilot License Revoked". Now I misinterpreted the thread title to mean "the pilot's license held by Tommy Lee was revoked" instead of the correct meaning which is "the license held by Tommy Lee's pilot was revoked". Of course clicking on the link in the thread starter clarifies the meaning.

As a question on English - what punctuation could be used for the statement "Tommy Lee's Pilot License Revoked" that would have made the intended meaning unambiguous? I can't think of a way.

I spent a few minutes going over this in my head before I posted.....I guess the fact that I'm an engineering student and not an English major may explain the ambiguity.

The correct title to the thread is "Tommy Lee's Pilot's License revoked" or
"Tommy Lee's Pilot looses his license". The current thread title reads as if Tommy Lee himself was the reckless pilot. He may be reckless for being one of the few left on this earth that would continue to employ David Martz as a pilot, given his record. However, Tommy Lee himself was not at the controls.

Be glad Tommy Lee is a public figure. That being the case, it is hard for him to win if he were to sue anybody for libel. But one has to be careful. If he were NOT a public figure, the original could easily be sued for starting a thread like this on a forum this popular. Not to mention that it isn't really a nice thing to do. One apostrophe and the letter "s" can mean the difference between a day at work or a day in court.

lol... Tommy Lee's pilot's license was loose? Maybe he should re-laminate it, and tighten that thing up!

You are correct - I should have used only one "o".

However, maybe his licence did get a bit messed up at the "climax" of the maneuver. No doubt it would become evidence at that point  Smile.

Anything that he touches would be loose judging by the size of his hog.

Well, judging by the way Tommy Lee steered that boat in his and Pam Anderson's home movie anything is possible.  eyebrow

If David Martz had more going for him this would be an "atta-boy" story but the guy has earned his FAA certificate revocation. Before this latest incident he tried to outrun and evade a far higher performing LAPD Eurocopter AS 350 with a borrowed Bell Jet Ranger, reportedly under the influence of alcohol. That incident was also caught on video. In other shenanigans Martz landed to pick-up Tommy Lee at Tommy's house- minus an FAA designated helipad. In fact most of David Martz notoriety comes from knowing Tommy Lee.

However the highest profile incident has to be the San Diego Half-Mile High Club episode with a woman known as Puma Swede, a porn star listed as 32 years of age but with a lot of airframe hours. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwRijHJXkyQ

Program note: The climax (excuse the pun) comes just as David Martz is deftly maneuvering his helicopter south of Del Mar and parallel to the 300 foot marine terrace of Torrey Pines and Black's beach. As the TMZ video captions "47.5 seconds" Puma Swede blurts out in complete surprise; "that's fast?!"

As I recall Pamela Anderson never gave Tommy Lee so scathing a review on that houseboat video.

I saw the ring on his finger in the video posted above, and thought about that one. It seems like he will have to deal with more than just the FAA
