I just saw this Newsweek article, Man Pilots Planes for 2 Years After Lying to Airlines About Experience:
A man has been sentenced to one year in prison for lying about his job experience before working as a commercial pilot in the U.K. for two years.
Craig Butfoy, 49, entered false details and fabricated his experience in his flight logbook so that he could appear more qualified to work for BA CityFlyer, a British Airways regional airline, and former Irish regional airline Stobart Air.
To summarize, a pilot for a major British regional airline was caught falsifying his flight hours and certifications to get his job.
What's interesting to me is, according to the article, how he was eventually caught:
Butfoy was employed with each airline [BA CityFlyer and Stobart Air] for one year, from 2016 to 2018, according to The Times of London. During that time, officials at BA CityFlyer reportedly became suspicious of his experience after an incident occurred in Switzerland when he pressed a button that "no qualified pilot would," a source told the news outlet.
What button(s) exist(s) on the sole aircraft type BA CityFlyer operated at the time, the Embraer E-Jet family (the 170 and 190SR, to be specific), which "no qualified pilot" would press, and which one was pressed by the pilot? Why would pressing that button be considered an action worthy of starting an investigation, which would eventually result in the airline finding out he made false representations?
