Joseph Sutherin, 14, got flown to East Ridge High School by his father, Bart Sutherin in a Hughes 300 helicopter. Bart Sutherin is a registered pilot. The school officials "freaked out," and called the sheriff and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Joseph said he just thought it would be fun. An FAA official said their was nothing wrong with that and that none of the regulations had been violated.
