FAA: Skydiving Sex Stunt Did Not Violate Federal Regulations

BAKERSFIELD, Calif.—The Federal Aviation Administration said Thursday that federal regulations were not violated in the skydiving sex stunt that took place earlier this month over Kern County, California, when porn star and ex-skydiving instructor Alex Torres—aka Voodoo—took pal and ex-skydiving school receptionist Hope Howell for some mile high sex while plummeting to earth.

FAA spokesperson Ian Gregor said at the time that apparent sexual activity that took place in the plane before the couple jumped may have violated FAA rules by being too much of a distraction to the pilot, who worked for the skydiving school, Skydive Taft, but the federal agency concluded otherwise after conducting an investigation into the incident.

"The FAA inspector who looked into this incident determined it did not result in violations of any Federal Aviation Regulations," said FAA spokesman Ian Gregor. "The pilot stated that the act did not distract him or interfere with any of his duties, and available video evidence confirms this account."
