Moore aircraft mechanic sentenced to 51 months

Oklahoma City_ John C. Richter, United States Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma, announced that Allen D. Good, 37, of Moore, has been sentenced to 51 months in prison for making false entries in aircraft engine logbooks.  He was also ordered to pay restitution to more than a dozen victims in the total amount of $363,633.  On September 28, co-defendants Robert Evan Parker and Larry Gene Good received sentences of 72 and 14 months in prison respectively.

Allen Good and his father, Larry Gene Good, did business as Good Aviation in Washington, Oklahoma.  In December of 2006, a jury convicted Allen Good and Mr. Parker of conspiracy and making false aircraft engine logbook entries.  The evidence at trial established that Allen Good overhauled aircraft engines by using inadequate parts and workmanship.  Mr. Parker then sold these engines fraudulently to customers throughout the United States.  The engines were not safe, and several of the purchasers experienced dangerous engine failures in flight.  Trial testimony established that Larry Gene Good signed some of the logbooks and that Allen Good signed his father's name in other logbooks.  His father's signature was integral to the conspiracy because Allen Good, unlike his father, did not possess an "airframe and powerplant" certificate issued by the Federal Aviation Administration.  Larry Gene Good pled guilty to a lesser charge, misprision of a felony, on the morning of the first day of the December 2006 trial.

In addition to the 51 months of incarceration and restitution, Allen Good was ordered to serve three years of supervised release and to forfeit to the United States $176,243.  He has been incarcerated since May of this year.

"Through their involvement in the sale of unsafe aircraft engines with false logbooks, these defendants created a substantial danger to the purchasers and the public," said U.S. Attorney John Richter.  "We will not hesitate to prosecute those who create this sort of danger."
