A Russian pilot and a female cadet have been kicked out of a flying school after other people at the school spotted a sex video online and identified the pair.
According to the local news site Gazeta, the 28-year-old instructor who worked as a pilot at the Sasovo Flight School Of Civil Aviation took off with the unidentified 21-year-old student on a Cessna 172 aircraft in the Russian federal subject of the Ryazan region.
Local media reported that the instructor who was a married man had persuaded the student to have sex with him after promising to give her extra flight time. She had reportedly initially refused because he was married but then had later given in when he offered the extra tuition.
Questioned about what happened the young woman claimed that the autopilot was on and that they had only kissed and hugged. She later claimed it was a one-off and had not been repeated.
The scandal came to light when she had a row with one of her fellow cadets, who then decided to post online to get revenge according to local media.
The flight school learned about the video only a month after the incident when it went viral on the Internet.
Several unidentified employees of the flight school had been alerted to the footage and confirmed that the pilot and cadet were their colleagues.
After the intimate video was confirmed as having been filmed during a flight on one of the planes owned by the school, both the pilot and the cadet were thrown out of the institution, although some media said that the woman had already resigned and collected her paperwork when she heard that the sex video had been made public.
