According to Calhoun Police Chief Garry Moss:
Calhoun police received a call from Homeland Security officials about a plane that was flying from Florida to Rome that had disappeared off radar. Once officials checked the plane’s information, they discovered the pilot’s medical certification to fly might have expired.
Floyd County police were called to Richard B. Russell Airport but the plane eventually landed at Tom B. David Air-port in Calhoun, where the man kept his plane.
He was met at the Calhoun airport by a police officer when he landed.
“It turned out that his medical (certification to fly) was expired,” Moss said. “He was coming to Rome to visit his mom.”
Moss did not have the pilot’s name.
Moss said the Federal Aviation Administration will be looking into the matter and no state or local charges were filed.
