The pilot of the bizjet that crashed into a building off the end of runway at Teterboro, NJ (TEB) airport on 2/2/2005 has been sentenced to 6 months in Federal jail and 3 years prohibition for his part in falsifying records on that and other flights as to fuel loads as well as a number of other related charges. Here is a link to an article with more details on this:

All I would have to say to the guy is "Quit being a baby, if you do the crime you will do the time". Those are some serious charges.

He got off easy...he survived!,...the alternative would have had more than himself crying. Flying planes is one aspect of life when "thinking outside the box" doesn't work. Mess with overloads and CG limits, 50/50 chance you may never fly again. Enjoy the incarceration...beats a funeral.

This part boggles my mind though:

"If Vieira successfully completes three years of supervised release following house arrest, he will be allowed to fly again, the judge said."

Fly what? Microsoft Flight Simulator? I cannot see any airline, business/corporate jet firms, etc., wanting to hire him after doing what he did.   

It's also good to see that other people from Platinum Jet were found guilty of their crimes too. This was a very sad incident that could have been completely avoided.

I think this only means that the court isn't restricting his employment or flight status after successful completion of his sentence. This doesn't mean that the FAA can't impose its own punishment and/or restrictions on him at anytime.

Exactly. Plus I can't imagine anyone writing a letter of recommendation for this guy either.
