Pilots not charged for violating the air space rules

 article about Pilots not charged for violating the air space rules
The pilots who cause an emergency evacuation of the White House and Capitol yesterday, have been released without any charges. However, they still might face a civil action from FAA.

The plane that violated the air space rules and flew within 3 miles from the White House, was piloted by a pilot Jim Sheaffer and a student pilot Troy Martin. No reason has been given for their actions. However, federal officials have said, that they don't believe there was any kind of actual threat. The two men were just flying to an air show in North Carolina.

Even though there will not be any charges from FBI and the Secret Service, the men might face license suspensions and penalties for failing to respond in communications, entering restricted airspace, etc.
