Hard to Stay on the Ground

Ted Mayfield just can’t stay out of the sky. The guy some people claim is your hero and mine, DB Cooper, and the former owner of Pacific Parachute Center, flies without a license.

A 74-year-old Sheridan man with a decades-long history of defying federal aviation rules just can’t seem to stay out of the cockpit.

Teddy Ernest Mayfield was sentenced Tuesday for flying a single-engine plane from Eugene Airport to the Independence airport in June 2008 — 26 years after the Federal Aviation Administration last revoked his pilot’s license.
