Federal prosecutors in California claimed in a news release that Trevor Daniel Jacob had admitted to purposefully crashing his jet in November 2021. The aircraft was outfitted with various cameras to record its downfall on camera.
An Olympic athlete in the past, Jacob is a skilled pilot and skydiver who was sponsored by a company that sold wallets, among other things. Jacob committed to promoting the company’s wallet in a YouTube video he would make as part of the sponsorship agreement.
On November 24, 2021, Jacob departed on his own from Lompoc City Airport, ostensibly heading to Mammoth Lakes. Instead of flying to his goal, Jacob intended to jump out of his plane in midair and record both his descent and crash as well as his own parachute landing.
Before the aircraft took flight, Jacob installed multiple cameras on various sections and outfitted himself with a selfie stick, video camera, and parachute. About 35 minutes after takeoff, Jacob jumped out of the aircraft over the Los Padres National Forest, which is close to Santa Maria. He then recorded himself parachuting to the ground.
The video, which was captured by a camera attached to a selfie stick and several video cameras mounted to his single-prop Taylorcraft BL-65, shows Jacob jumping out of the plane in midair because of an apparent power outage (which was later shown to be untrue) and opening his parachute over the Los Padres National Forest in California, close to Santa Maria.
Prosecutors claim that on December 23, he uploaded a video on YouTube with the title “I Crashed My Airplane” in order to advertise a sponsorship with a wallet brand. Trevor Jacob initially stated that he leaped from the cockpit wearing a parachute when his jet broke down in midair. A 30-year-old internet YouTuber named Trevor Jacob was given a six-month prison sentence on Monday in response to his 12-minute video, “I Crashed My Airplane.”
Jacob lied to federal investigators when he submitted an aircraft accident incident report that falsely indicated that the aircraft experienced a full loss of power approximately 35 minutes after takeoff. Jacob also lied to an FAA aviation safety inspector when he said the airplane’s engine had quit and, because he could not identify any safe landing options, he had parachuted out of the plane.
