2 Question although I am more curious abobut #2,
Someone I know has been convicted of a DUI (around 2002). and they are wanting to become a pilot. at least a CFI. wants to go to the airlines but age might be a factor. When they were filling out the forms I think it said have you been convicted of a crime and he said yes and he has been arrested for other stuff but never convicted (domestic violence). and he said something to the examiner or someone where they are asking him questions and FAA now wants a letter from him before the medical is issued. Well today I heard him over talking and he was saying to someone that he should of said no as they will not find out nor will they care as it happened such a long time ago. I have two questions:
- Would the FAA find out and would they carer about it?
- Would the airlines still care about the person having a DUI even though it was such a long time ago?
