2nd Pilot Facing Criminal for Violating TFR

A second FAA licensed pilot is facing criminal charges after flying inside the TFR for the Super Bowl. The other day I wrote about this other pilot who was charged.

The second pilot is identified as Kevin Jonathan Canty, 33, of West Palm Beach, Florida.

According to ABC News, “According to the complaint, FBI agents saw a drone flying Saturday in downtown Tampa, several miles from the stadium, and then located Canty, the drone’s operator. Canty told agents that he is an FAA-licensed drone pilot and he was aware of the temporary flight restriction, prosecutors said.

A review of the drone’s flight path showed it had traveled near public events related to the Super Bowl.”
