On October 20, 2022, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida sentenced Cole Allan Peacock to 37 months of incarceration, 3 years of supervised release, and a $200 special assessment. The investigation revealed that in August 2019, Peacock forged an FAA flight instructor’s signature, which authorized Peacock to be the pilot-in-command on multiple flights, including those with passengers. In August 2020, Peacock submitted fraudulent records to FAA to falsely register as the true owner of a stolen Learjet 55.
