Mile-high flights closed down by aviation watchdog
Aviation authorities in the UK have ordered the closure of a company which offered amorous couples the chance to join the famed ‘mile-high club’. British newspaper The Mirror reported that Mile High Flights charges lovers GBP640 (US$922) to have a private romp in the clouds on board its specially adapted Cessna aircraft. Unfortunately for the company, the UK’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) ruled that the operation was dangerous as the couples’ activities could distract the pilot. Mile High’s founder, Mike Crisp, accused the CAA of “prudish snobbery”.
