Piloto comercial sin licencia durante 13 añosSwedish air pilot flies passenger jets for THIRTEEN YEARS without a licence... and is fined just £1,700
A fake Swedish air pilot has been fined £1,700 and banned from flying for 12 months after confessing to flying passenger jets for an astonishing thirteen years without a license.
Thomas Salme, 41, was made a captain three years after conning his way on to the flight deck of Scandinavian airline Air One.
He was arrested at Amsterdam's Schipol airport in March - while seated in the cockpit of a Corendon Boeing 737 carrying 101 passengers just minutes from take-off.
Officers, who were alerted by a Swedish tip-off, said the man had once had a commercial pilot licence, but it had expired and it never qualified him for passenger flights.
He claimed that he had also flown British, Belgian and Italian airlines, though it is unclear which ones.
Last month he was fined £1,700 and was banned from flying for 12 months by a Dutch court - which noted that in the entire 13 years, he had never caused an accident.
Salme said he secretly trained himself at night on a full-scale flight simulator - and created his own license with a photocopier.
'I got the crackpot idea to apply as a co-pilot at a real airline so I made myself a Swedish flying permit with a logo out of regular white paper,' he told German magazine Focus.
'It wasn't laminated, and looked like something I'd made at home,' he said.

'It was surprisingly easy. The documents look different everywhere in Europe. An Italian airline doesn't know what a Swedish licence looks like. And you can forge all the IDs you need.'
He told the magazine that a friend who worked for Scandinavian airline SAS let him use their flight simulator at night.
At the time he was working for SAS as a maintenance engineer.
'I'd train there for two or three hours at a time- at least 15 to 20 times over one and a half years,' he told Focus.
Officers, who were alerted by a Swedish tip-off, said the man had once had a commercial pilot licence, but it had expired and it never qualified him for passenger flights."La estupidez es el resultado de un duro esfuerzo personal" Oscar Wilde.
