Former Alaska Pilot Pleads Guilty to Flying Drunk Several Times

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA - JANUARY 28, 2013: An Alaska Airlines Boeing 737-400 lands at Los Angeles Airport on January 28, 2013. The plane seats 126 passengers with a range of 10,200 km

David Hans Arnston, a former Alaska Airlines pilot, plead guilty on Tuesday to operating aircraft while inebriated.

“This pilot worked for the airline for more than 20 years, and we now know that he was an alcoholic who flew commercial flights while under the influence of alcohol,” said attorney Nicola T. Hanna. “When he was finally caught, the evidence indicates that he had flown with an alcohol level more than three times the legal limit.”
