His primary instructor will have a lot of paper work to do with the FAA. If he knew about they will jerk his lic.

sparkie624. I agree, but in todays world it would not surprise me when there is money involved. At 84 years old and thousands of hours, I've seen a lot happen in aviation. Just glad I flew in the 1950-1990s.

Idiots born every day... It amazing that someone would be a Stupid enough to try to Fly Under the Influence... Hope the courts are harsh on him... In Missouri, I do not really have a problem with the Fire Arm, but being Drunk and having Drugs or " drug paraphernalia " is not acceptable in any way or fashion. I guess his Flight Instructor just lost a student...

Wow! This guy needs to spend a bit of time in jail contemplating how lucky he was to not have killed someone.

From the map in the news story; it looks like he overflew 3GV (grain Valley airport) before landing on I-70. I'll bet he had already run one tank dry. His life is ruined now.
