A former Federal Aviation Administration employee has been sentenced to one year and one day in federal prison for illegally accepting tips from pilots to whom he granted licenses.
Authorities say 64-year-old Harrington Bishop, of Pemberton, was not authorized to give the flight tests or grant licenses during his nonworking hours.
Bishop is a 20-year Air Force veteran who said he was trying to help other military pilots as they sought commercial pilot credentials.
At his sentencing in Camden on Wednesday, Bishop said he knew it was wrong to accept the $300 tips. He did it more than 100 times between 2004 and last year.
A federal prosecutor says there's no evidence that he granted an improper license to a pilot who could not have received one legitimately.
