This guy must be quite the strange egg... Now he's in trouble for buzzing the crowd at the Senior US Men's Open at Whistling Straits in his helicopter -

That's entertaining. What privelege, what chutzpah!

I love this one, remember hearing about it when it happened:

Michaels got a conditional use for his helipad last spring despite some neighbors' objections and a complaint that he landed without permission on the Kettle Moraine High School field in Wales while on a custard stand run.

:D

I've known a ton of ADA's. He might not be too proud either?

I have thought the same thing. I can't beleive people have not started picketing his practice.

The article states, "The annual permit for Michaels' helipad came with limits on the number and time and route of takeoffs and landings.
Five written complaints could pose a threat to continued use."

I guess he thinks he's the exception, anyone take pictures?
200 feet above a crowd is mighty low :rolleyes:

He pulled a similar stunt at the Malibu Open where he got caught cheating at his house in 2005. He buzzed the lake in his plane at a scary low altitude. Just trying to out-do himself, only this time he wanted to land on someone's head.

i remember his plane flying extremely low at the malibu open. a $173 for an illegal helicopter landing. My 15 over ticket was more than that!

Funny, his helicopter is listed as a turboprop engine. Aren't all Robinsons piston? http://www.airport-data.com/aircraft/N330JM.html Owned by Michael's Aire Service. He's got himself another little side business.

Tax writeoff, like his farming fish in a waterski lake or watershiing on a fish farm lake!

FAA does not take kindly to buzzing. They eat lawyers for lunch. Almost as bad as the IRS.

WRT to dental care, there was a published report the WI dental association was investigating an inordinate high number of root canals performed by a certain general practitioner.

On another note, I know of Dentist near our small town who thinks the rules don't apply to him, and takes great pride in forcing people to sue him, and then hoping they make public remarks about him, so he can sue them back. He's played the game into being very rich.

I have some customers that are dentists and they seem to be doing well, but none of them have their own private ski lake, helicopters, airplanes, etc. Does it really pay THAT well?:confused:

If he has as little common sense about money as he does on other things he could just be swimming in debt.
