A bird strike on his iPad during an -- bound flight the FAA sending a letter to -- -- -- saying quote.
In little legal enforcement act in -- civil penalty.
We are issuing this letter which will be made a matter of record for -- to two years grant -- -- calling it justice.
Grant welcome we did reach out to the FAA by the way we'll get a statement from them in a moment.
I don't understand what they're making the big -- about.
You were in midair right.
Today to tell you know no devices on them phones on anything like that.
Well of course -- and thank you for having me.
Upon boarding that -- -- flight attendant always announces turn off all electronics.
I just so -- I picked this out -- up.
And started after I -- not been on thousands of flights three million miles on all the airlines over the last 25 years.
And picked us up and started video -- the the departure this flight is sixteen seconds and it caught this bird strike.
I didn't think I was breaking a -- I didn't think I was putting myself for 257.
Passengers at risk.
Flights above America every day 90% of people have a mobile device in this country 19% of them have a tablet.
If if these electronics PD's are actually dangerous to me and other passengers -- FAA doesn't need to send me a letter what they should do is make him.
Confiscate -- or banned him from the exit from the airlines.
On for that particular flight and in your particular position those birds were greater danger.
Your iPad but having said that -- what did they say did did anyone on the plane -- the flight attendants -- anyone.
Say hey hey what are you doing you shouldn't have that on.
No of course not because I mean how many people probably had a mobile device or computer on at that time.
When they tell me turn the device self.
Nobody on that -- today are very few people take that.
That instruction seriously today nobody thinks.
Iphones ipads computers or electronics.
Can possibly interfere with the transmission the operation of a plane and so what I'm saying to the FAA and -- frequent flyers should support mean this is look.
Live this ridiculous bay and it doesn't take planes down if it did.
Hundreds of planes would have fell out of there.
Since this interview started.
You know the FAA in it -- this letter the I guess -- isn't.
A stronger wording -- he's yet.
Send me your -- to comply with the flight attendants structured during a critical phase of flight and an aircraft emergency -- affected.
The safe outcome of the flight.
I'd like he residents of ward of the point you're on a listen and every time you go flying.
You're you're you're Danny's gonna be pulled aside and -- -- yeah exactly what does this mean debate does this mean not business is going to be in -- did is it me I'm gonna have extra time at the airports.
A little bit is -- -- cavity search I mean what does it mean I'd like to know that also in this letter is I know I was actually with a guy would accidentally ended up on these yet kind of list and and -- just make your life -- They drag -- -- they go through this your -- belongings.
We've exhausted detail about were you very rugged dear fellow -- about five days before you're supposed to take off this -- gonna get on occasion that.
Thank you for that pretty.
Should you tell me that but the reality is look if it's gonna get ugly for one person they've admitted that he uses a phone.
And if the F face feels that strongly about this.
What are they not tell us what are they not telling the American passenger they -- -- -- that aviation is this unsafe.
Are they not disclosing something else to us because to treat me like -- terrorists as an American.
Homegrown American and it's a business owner I spent millions of dollars with the airlines over the years the -- millions.
Trying to help the economy trying to run their business to treat me like -- terrorists are some anti American or some problem to aviation is ridiculous.
But do you think had you not caught what you did.
On that -- to have these birds.
And that could have been a real Sarkozy and you -- look at that -- why didn't.
Authorities know that there were birds in the -- of these things are freakish events anyway.
That that you wouldn't be in the trouble you're in now or getting the controversy -- generated.
What will of course not I mean what what what what is with this this does not transmit anything when it's recording video.
She the FAR.
I love this -- is -- -- -- it is what it is and those of the laws and I agree with you some of them can be silly but they're saying you violated and and now you've got two years of body cavity searches.
Yeah yeah from outright -- that I don't think it means anything though I think it's just paid big government we're gonna scare you we wanna spank you that public and we hope that your -- -- -- enough like the rest of America that you just take your little whip and do as we tell rather than.
He transparent tell the American public the truth.
What is the real issue with this device or any the other devices aren't -- next time you go through airport security give us a heads up would be curious.
What happened Steve I really what I'll I'll clear the way for you to you can come in behind me -- you know they'll have.
