Washington D.C. [USA], Apr. 4 (ANI): Looks like Harrison Ford may not be done piloting his planes just yet as he has got Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) ok to keep flying sans restrictions. The FAA confirmed in a statement that the 'Star Wars' actor neither will be fined, nor will he lose his pilot's license after he mistakenly flew over a jetliner before landing his plane on an airport taxiway on February 13, E! Online reported. "The FAA has completed its investigation of the incident in which a pilot landed on a taxiway at John Wayne Airport on Feb. 13, 2017. The FAA does not comment on cases involving individual airmen," the statement read. "Any letters the FAA issued in connection with this case can be requested through the Freedom of Information Act." The 74-year-old star's law firm Aerlex Law Group said in a statement, "The FAA conducted a full investigation into the matter, including an interview with Mr. Ford, and determined that no administrative or enforcement action was warranted. Mr. Ford retains his pilot's certificate without restriction." It further read,"In closing the matter, the agency acknowledged Mr. Ford's long history of compliance with the Federal Aviation Regulations and his cooperative attitude during the investigation." The statement concluded, "Mr. Ford has held a pilot's certificate for more than 20 years, has logged more than 5,000 hours in the air, and has never been the subject of an FAA administrative or enforcement action." In February, Ford inadvertently landed on an active taxiway instead of the parallel runway he was cleared for at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California. During his landing, he came extremely close to an American Airlines flight with 116 people on board awaiting takeoff. (ANI)
