    It comes down to who was operating the aircraft? It was not a charter flight, so there is no operational control issues.

    It's easy to have an unqualified crew when the aircraft is privately owned and no one is responsible for it's operation.

    If someone has enough money they could buy a jet and hire some pilots to fly it.......that simple.

    ...yep, there will always be bandits to "game" the system. Sooner or later karma catches up to them. Most bandits count on not being ramp checked. That is pretty much assured that the "regulator" isn't going to be on the ramp doing checks since they have going the a computer risk assessment.

    "Drain the Swamp" and get the "regulator" back to doing their core job!!
