Helicopter pilot in Kobe Bryant crash had FAA violation in 2015

The pilot of a helicopter that crashed last month, killing Kobe Bryant among others, was reprimanded five years ago for flying without permission into airspace while he had reduced visibility. Ara Zobayan was counseled by an FAA investigator after he violated FAA rules by crossing into busy airspace near LA International Airport on May 11, 2015.

Can we stop bad mouthing the pilot? He trusted his life to his craft, and died too. I think he paid the price already.

Leave it alone America!! It was an accident! A terrible catastrophic accident! The American media is truly the enemy of the people, full of corruption and not even close to journalism! MSNBC, CNN, NYT’s, WP, ABC, CBS, NBC, are a disaster to the term “news”. Nobody in Japan relies on you and nobody wants your programming here! Your ratings globally have all hit bottom! You’re a school of bottom-feeders!
