Flight school student arrested after 10 aircraft vandalized, solo flight denied

Martin County sheriff’s deputies on Monday arrested a flight school student after they said he vandalized 10 airplanes at Treasure Coast Flight School at Whitham Field in Stuart.

Sumebh Singh, a 23-year-old student from India, became angry after school instructors would not allow him to take a solo flight, according to the sheriff’s office in a Facebook post.

School officials called the Martin County Sheriff’s Office after they saw Singh on video going from plane to plane causing damage to each of the aircraft. A plane’s throttle was among the items damaged.
