Demand Consequences for Pilot who Flew Under the Influence

Target: Richard Scott, Governor of Florida

Goal: Demand consequences for the Florida pilot who flew while under the influence of alcohol

Flying a plane is no easy task; the pilot needs to have his or her full concentration on controlling the plane. If someone is under the influence of alcohol, it is obviously not easy to concentrate on difficult tasks, especially flying a plane. The laws of being a pilot state that a pilot must wait 8 hours after drinking before flying a plane. Unfortunately, David King did not follow this policy. He was arrested for flying his plane under the influence of alcohol. His plane was spotted when a helicopter pilot noticed King’s aircraft flying somewhat recklessly. Apparently the plane changed altitudes several times, suggesting that King attempted multiple landings.

While driving drunk is also extremely dangerous, flying under the influence has the added element of altitude. If a pilot flies too low, their plane can easily hit buildings and put people’s lives in danger. By flying under the influence, King not only violated the rules of being a pilot, but he also risked his own life and the lives of innocent bystanders. It is necessary that he faces severe consequences in order to set an example for other pilots who may think that flying under the influence is acceptable. He risked hundreds of lives and deserves to face consequences as severe as his crime. Tell Governor Richard Scott to ensure that King is punished for his actions appropriately.


Dear Richard Scott,

Recently, pilot David King was arrested for flying under the influence of alcohol. He knew that pilots are not supposed to fly up to 8 hours after drinking, but he did not obey this law. His plane was spotted by a helicopter pilot when King’s aircraft was flying out of control. The helicopter pilot noticed swerving and a great deal of altitude changes, making King’s plane seem suspicious. The altitude changes suggest that he attempted to land the plane several times. Had King tried to land his plane at one of these first locations, he may have severely injured or killed many people, including himself.

It is important to emphasize that flying a plane is not an easy task and not something to be joked around with. King could have run into a building, another aircraft, or even a body of water, putting many lives, including his own, in danger. This case must serve as an example for pilots everywhere. King needs to face severe consequences in order to get the message across to pilots that it is not acceptable to fly a plane while under the influence. You must ensure that King is sentenced appropriately, and does not get off with small consequences. For putting this many lives in danger, King must face severe punishment.
