YouTuber Accused of Crashing a Plane for Views. Now the Feds Are Investigating.

Everyone's talking about it, including the Federal Aviation Administration.

A YouTuber and former Olympic snowboarder has been accused of crashing his plane on purpose for clicks, and the FAA has opened an investigation to get to the bottom of the growing mess.

Trevor Jacob has been the subject of online criticism after posting a YouTube video where he parachuted from a Taylorcraft BL64 plane and filmed it crashing into the hills of the Los Padres National Forest near Cuyama, California. The video outlined his newly-purchased Taylorcraft's final flight on November 24, 2021, a trip from the Lompoc City Airport in Santa Barbara to Mammoth Lakes where he planned to partake in some general adventuring like paragliding and snowboarding. Jacob also mentioned that he would be spreading the ashes of his friend Johnny Strange during the flight. Strange was killed in a wingsuit accident in 2015 and Jacob explains that he loved the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

During the flight, however, the Taylorcraft's engine supposedly lost power, stalled, and could not be restarted. Jacob then points the plane nose-down and exits, sending the unoccupied aircraft into the ground.

Jacob continued to film himself as he descended and proclaimed, "This is why I always fly with a parachute." He then trekked back to the wreckage and hiked until a farmer, who he credits with saving his life, found him in the darkness.

This is where things started to go south.

The video of the incident was posted to YouTube where it immediately began racking up views. The aviation sector of YouTube wasted no time picking apart Jacob's claims. At the time of writing, the video has reached over one million views. It also amassed more than 5,000 comments, many of which called out the crash as being staged. Comments on the video have since been turned off, but that hasn't stopped people from making reaction and explainer videos that point out abnormalities in the pilot's videos. It’s worth noting here that some suspect the video currently on Jacob’s YouTube to be a trimmed-down version of what was originally uploaded. However, a few of the segments can be found when looking at other videos uploaded by YouTubers critiquing the pilot’s handling of the situation.

For starters, the comment about Jacob always wearing a parachute was identified as misleading. Several YouTubers reviewed the limited number of flying videos that Jacob posted and noted that they could not locate another video of the former Olympic athlete wearing a parachute when flying, let alone a sport parachute like what was worn in the video. It's worth noting that many pilots of small general aviation aircraft do not fly with parachutes, as cabin space is very limited. However, to Jacob's credit, he can be seen wearing the same chute harness in an Instagram photo from September.

Another video points out that when Jacob jumped from the plane, what appear to be two fire extinguishers were strapped to his legs. Again, an atypical sight.

There were other weird items picked from the video, like a disconnected fuel selector valve, and the instrument-facing camera which is turned off just before the engine issue occurs. Commenters also point out that his microphone isn't plugged in, that he appears to be acting poorly, and that he had no reason to hike back to his plane if it didn't have emergency supplies. These are all speculative, and while they don't prove that Jacob was acting in bad faith, they are legitimate concerns. Global Air points out that Jacob only received his pilot's license in mid-2020, so are these rookie mistakes, or not-so-meticulously planned moves? That's for the Federal Aviation Administration to decide.

Aviation YouTuber Trent Palmer dissected the situation in a video of his own. The upload points out that another one of Jacob's planes was supposedly seen circling the crash site days prior on FlightAware, a flight tracker which records the real-time and historic paths taken by a plane and makes it searchable via the aircraft's tail number. 

Perhaps just as intriguing is that the Taylorcraft BL64 was purchased about a month prior to the accident. Jacob is quoted as telling the previous owner that he was going to "do something special" with the plane, but didn't elaborate.

The Federal Aviation Administration has launched an investigation into the crash, as confirmed by AVWeb.

The Santa Barbara Independent spoke with individuals at the Lompoc airport who claimed it didn't seem that Jacob intended to make a complete flight to Mammoth as he claimed. The aircraft was said to be in a state of "disrepair" and in need of maintenance, which Jacob reportedly struggled to complete himself. Several days after the crash, Jacob returned to the airport and was informed that he needed to file a report to the FAA. Jacob then reportedly chartered a helicopter to remove the wrecked plane and transported it to an unknown location.

My calls to the Lompoc airport to confirm this information were not returned at the time of writing, and the FAA does not comment on individual investigations.

Bob Perry, a local flight instructor at a Santa Ynez Airport, told the Independent that Jacob's claims are "all very suspect." Perry believes that the claims of there being "no safe place" to land the Taylorcraft were misrepresented, as the plane could have cruised at least 15 or 20 miles given the conditions.

If November 24 rings a familiar bell in your head, that's the same day that D.B. Cooper famously jumped from a hijacked plane with $200,000 in ransom 50 years prior.

Whether or not Jacob will be prosecuted for the crash, or if he will have his pilot's license revoked, will take some time to play out. The FAA is notoriously thorough in investigating matters like these and often takes a year or longer to produce a final report and recommendation. But most importantly, if the FAA does decide he's guilty, it must prove that Jacob showed intent to break the law and federal aviation regulations.





YouTuber and Olympian Trevor Jacob accused of crashing plane ‘for views’

Olympian Trevor Jacob is in hot water and is being investigated after he was accused of leaving his plane to crash while skydiving to the ground.

January 19, 2022 - 7:01PM

YouTuber and Olympian Trevor Jacob could be in hot water after he was accused of crashing his single-engine plane “for views”.

Jacob, who represented the US at the 2014 Winter Olympics in snowboarding, took off from Lompoc Airport in the Santa Barbara region of California on November 24 last year.

Jacob was planning on spreading the ashes of his friend Johnny Strange, who died last year in a base jumping incident in Switzerland.

Wearing a parachute on takeoff, Jacob steered his plane – a 1940 Taylorcraft, a single-turboprop-engine aircraft – towards Mammoth Lakes in California.

The flight appeared to be going to plan, with Jacob giving a big thumbs-up to the GoPro mounted on his plane’s dashboard, before things started to go wrong.

In a video uploaded to YouTube a month after the crash, Jacob spliced footage from the GoPros attached to the outside of his plane, and the one inside the cockpit.

The propeller of his plane starts to falter and Jacob opens the door to look outside.

After a few seconds of Jacob appearing to worry, he eventually opens the door of his plane completely and, with his parachute attached to his back, jumps out of the aircraft.

Jacob films himself parachuting to the ground, in the remote Canadian wilderness, landing in a spiky bush in the process.

The video then shows the plane, with the GoPros still attached, gliding its way over the mountains before eventually smashing into the side of a cliff.

The plane crashed in Los Padres National Forest near Cuyama, California, a remote park in the Santa Barbara region of the state.

Jacob makes his way to the plane, retrieving what he can from the wreckage, and then proceeds to hike through the Californian bush for hours.

Night falls, with Jacob still not encountering any civilization, however he finds a stream just as the sun is setting.

Hours later, he hears a car and runs to it for help, with the farmers in the ute assisting him.

In the video, Jacob tells the farmers he was forced to ditch the plane because of an apparent engine failure.

“I had an engine out in the mountains and there was nowhere to land. I always fly with a parachute,” he said.

“And I was like, ‘I can either jump right now or take the chance to land in this thing and I’m like ‘f**k that’, I’m out’. And then as soon as I open the canopy, and opened the parachute, the plane came back around and almost hit me.”

Jacob also took to Instagram to post a photo of the wreckage.

“I was recently flying a small plane over the mountains when I experienced engine failure. It was the most intense experience of my life,” he wrote.

“I did not think I would make it out alive. I promised myself I’d always fly that route with a parachute after my friend died on the same flight path, and it came in handy.”

Jacob later edited the Instagram caption to read simply, “crashed my plane … there’s a video about it on my YouTube channel”.

However, the video quickly drew skepticism from the aviation community, with a number of pilots reacting to the video and debunking his explanation.

The edited video also doesn’t show Jacob attempting to go through any engine failure checklists or looking for a potential place he could glide the plane to safety.

Sources at Lompoc Airport later told US media Jacob had purchased the aircraft when it was “in need of major maintenance”.

Sceptics also questioned why Jacob was flying with a big parachute strapped to his back with one pilot, who had knowledge of the 1940 Taylorcraft, saying the seat would’ve had to be modified to fit Jacob and his parachute.

The situation worsened for Jacob on Christmas Day last year when the United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced it was investigating the crash.

The FAA is yet to provide a further update on Jacob and said in a statement it “does not comment on individual investigations”.

On November 28, 2021, about 1658 central standard time, a Bell 206B helicopter, N59600, was destroyed when it was involved in an accident near Perry, Oklahoma. The commercial pilot sustained fatal injuries and the student pilot sustained serious injuries. The helicopter was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 91 personal flight.

The family members of the pilot reported that he worked fulltime as a helicopter air ambulance pilot. The pilot owned the accident helicopter and also worked part-time seasonal jobs as a 14 CFR Part 137 aerial application pilot.

According to the student pilot, who is the son of the pilot, the helicopter departed from a private heliport on the family’s property about 1600. The pilot performed three traffic pattern flights at the Perry Municipal Airport (F22), Perry, Oklahoma. The helicopter then departed to the west of the airport, about 2 miles west of I-35, where the pilot demonstrated to his son how he performed low-level aerial application maneuvers.

During the demonstration flight, the maneuvers were stopped, and the occupants observed a coyote in a field. About 50 ft above ground level (agl), and about 25 knots forward airspeed, the helicopter experienced an un-commanded left roll. The pilot attempted to regain control; however, the helicopter impacted a field, and came to rest next to a fence line. A postimpact fire ensued and destroyed the helicopter. The son was able to egress from the burning wreckage and contacted first responders.

A preliminary review of meteorological data indicated a light southerly wind below 2,000 ft agl, no indication of turbulence or low-level wind shear, or any other outflows or wind shifts. A pilot report indicated flight visibility of 10 miles. There were no inflight weather advisories over the region during the flight. Astronomical conditions indicated the accident occurred before sunset with a low sun elevation present.
