Instructor lied on documents

Guilty: Ian King

Guilty: Ian King

A FLYING instructor may face jail after he was found guilty of fraudulently obtaining a pilot’s licence for a businessman from Bailiff Bridge.

Ian King displayed a “gross breach of trust” by signing off Paul Spencer’s training records just weeks before the accident that killed both him and his wife Linda.

The couple died when the helicopter he was piloting came down in Rudding Park resort, Harrogate, in January 2008.
