Helicopter Pilot In Sex Act Over San Diego Denied License

Posted: Updated:
GARDENA, Calif. (AP) - A judge says a commercial helicopter pilot videotaped in a sex act while flying over San Diego committed gross negligence and cannot have his license back.

After a three-hour hearing Tuesday, National Transportation Safety Board administrative law Judge William R. Mullins upheld a Federal Aviation Administration order revoking the license of David Martz.

Martz had no comment after the ruling.

A passenger was videotaping when Martz let an adult film actress perform a sex act on him during the May 20, 2005, flight, and an edited version eventually became public.

The judge watched the unedited tape in chambers and took testimony before his decision.

Martz testified that his actions weren't bright and he's much more responsible now.
