Hancock County Pilot DUI Attorney

If you, as a pilot, are facing a DUI case, it is important to understand the potential consequences. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has specific obligations and procedures in place. While a first offense may not initiate any FAA action, subsequent convictions can lead to serious consequences.

When arrested for a DUI, it is crucial to seek guidance from an experienced Hancock County criminal lawyer. They will provide assistance throughout the court proceedings, offer advice on how to plead, and ensure you understand the process of reporting your DUI conviction to the FAA.

Under FAA requirements, pilots are obligated to report any DUI incidents themselves. Failure to do so can result in severe repercussions, including license suspension or revocation, even for a first offense. However, it is essential to report accurately to the FAA, avoiding unnecessary license loss. A skilled Hancock County criminal lawyer can assist with the reporting process, ensuring timely submission. As a general guideline, reports should be submitted within sixty days of the incident.

When completing the Application for Airman Medical Certificate, all DUI convictions, past, and present, should be disclosed. It is also necessary to report dismissed charges and participation in rehabilitation programs. Failure to disclose or report such incidents can have detrimental effects on your career. Transparency is key in these situations. Concealing prior convictions or dismissals is considered a criminal act. Therefore, it is important to carefully follow the application instructions when reporting DUI incidents. Seek advice from your attorney to ensure accurate disclosure when applying for an Airman Medical Certificate. While a first-time offense may not affect your certificate, repeated offenses are taken seriously by the FAA and may result in invalidation unless accompanied by substance abuse evaluation.

For better engagement and a clearer understanding of the DUI reporting process for pilots, consult a Hancock County DUI lawyer who specializes in FAA regulations and can provide comprehensive guidance.

It is important to report any convictions, even if they have been dismissed or if you have attended a rehabilitation program. Failing to disclose this information can have serious consequences. Transparency is key and hiding past convictions, even dismissed ones, is not advised. The application provides specific instructions on how to disclose DUIs, so it is crucial to read and follow them carefully to ensure accurate reporting. Consider seeking advice from your attorney on how to disclose certain information when applying for your Airman Medical Certificate. Note that a first-time DUI offense is unlikely to impact your certificate, but repeated offenses may result in invalidation until a substance abuse evaluation is completed.

The loss of a professional license can have significant and long-lasting effects. Therefore, it is highly recommended to consult an attorney to avoid making any mistakes during the process. If you or someone you know has been arrested, reach out to Mountaineer Criminal Law Group immediately to prevent the revocation of your driving and professional license. To schedule an initial consultation, please call (304) 900-339.

Client Reviews

I had hired Mr. Logue a few years ago for my gf at the time for charges she had gotten before I had met her, for prostitution. Big mistake to date her and pay for her lawyer as we didn’t work out but Mr. Logue far exceeded expectations. He got nearly all charges in 2 separate cases dropped for her...


I was arrested on a felony 3 charge looking at at least up to 2 years in prison. County District Attorney didn't want to negotiate. After a lot of hard work, Sean was able to plead the case all the way down to just 90 days jail with a work release. Better deal than I realistically could have hoped...

Mr. Logue took our son’s cases on very short notice (the first lawyer we hired wasn’t getting anywhere with either of the prosecutors and had actually turned one of the cases over to the court-appointed attorney). We hired Mr. Logue to go to trial if needed, but he worked with both prosecutors and...
