HONOLULU – A pilot accused of flying aerial banners over Oahu will face a jury trial.
Matthew Radeck works for Aerial Banners Inc., which is based in Florida. He was arrested in July under a city ordinance that bans aerial advertising.
Radeck’s attorney was granted a request for a jury trial Tuesday in court, Hawaii News Now reports.
Radeck’s company says it didn’t need to follow city rules because it has a waiver from the Federal Aviation Administration.
If convicted Radeck could get a three-month sentence.
