Six people die in a helicopter explosion. Evidence points to a millionaire con-man who provides self-actualization seminars for his wealthy clients.
Did You Know?
The loss of an aircraft is a Federal matter, and Federal authorities have jurisdiction over the investigation. While the NYPD would certainly be asked to be a party to the investigation, Federal law states that all aircraft accidents involving US registered aircraft or aircraft on US soil are the responsibility of the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB). Initial notification would be to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
In a case such as this, as soon as there was any indication that a criminal act was suspected or involved, the FBI would be called in to head the that aspect of the Investigation.
This would be a high profile case to the Feds, as the aircraft would have to operated under 14 CFR Part 135 rules, and the company would hold an FAA Air Carrier Certificate. See more
