The pilot of flying the missing plane carrying Emiliano Sala is said to not have a commercial licence and investigators intend to look into this.

The search for the plane carrying Premier League footballer Emiliano Sala and pilot Dave Ibbotson was formally called off on Thursday because the chances of survival were ‘extremely remote’

The Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) has opened a probe since the light aircraft disappeared from Radar on Monday night.

An AAIB spokesman said:

‘We are looking at all operational aspects of the flight including licensing.’

Speaking of licensing, Mr Ibbotson, 59, of Crowle, Lincolnshire, held a private pilot’s licence and passed a medical exam as recently as November, according to Federal Aviation Administration records. The Civil Aviation Authority said the aircraft was registered in the US, so fell under the States’ regulations. US law states private pilots cannot make a profit by carrying passengers.

However, the plane went missing in the Channel Islands which is in Western Europe and the regulations seem to be different.

Meanwhile, Romina Sala, the sister of Emiliano Sala, said that she feels her 28-year-old brother, who had just signed for Cardiff City, and his pilot are still alive as she called on rescuers not to give up hope.
