Egypt Bans Pilot For Life For Allowing Actor Mohamed Ramadan Sit In The Cockpit During A Flight

Egypt has banned a pilot for life for allowing celebrity and actor Mohamed Ramadan to sit in the cockpit during a private flight to Saudi Arabia.

The actor and singer posted a video of himself in the co-pilot's seat, holding the controls, as someone else commented he's "driving the plane now".

The co-pilot was also reportedly banned for a year over the incident.

The flight was run by Smart Aviation, whose chief executive resigned his post, officials said.
