Helicopter Pilot Faces Jail Time for Rescue

New Zealand helicopter pilot flew on a suspended license.

A helicopter pilot is facing possible jail time for rescuing an injured hunter in New Zealand back in 2014. Dave Armstrong, Kaikoura Helicopters director and pilot, performed the search and rescue mission while his license was suspended for a medical issue, according to a report by stuff.co.nz.
 
The hunter, identified as Scott Lee, fell in a remote bush area north of Kaikoura, New Zealand, and broke his femur. Armstrong was the second attempt at a rescue after the first helicopter had to turn back due to low fuel.
