The Mile High Club has just been one-upped.

When porn star and weekend skydiving instructor Alex Torres decided to film himself and skydive company receptionist Hope Howell having sex at thousands of feet above ground, it seemed like they had covered all the bases. According to reports, they filmed the stunt in the very early morning where no one could be disturbed and no public nudity complaints could be thrown their way.

But now the Taft Police Department is involved, and this stunt suddenly seems a lot less fun. Both the Taft Police and the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) are investigating whether the pilot of the plane should be cited for allowing this to happen. While it is technically legal to have sex in a private plane, The Sacramento Bee reports that “FAA spokesman Ian Gregor says any activity that could distract the pilot while he’s flying could be a violation of federal regulations.” The skydiving sweethearts are reported to having started the act on the plane and then continued once they jumped out in tandem into the air.

Skydive Taft owner David Chrouch, the owner of Skydive Taft (the name of the skydiving school and the owner of the plane) has fired Alex Torres, but hasn’t decided yet if he will fire the company’s receptionist, Hope Howell. Authorities have also reported that Torres had the video on his blog but removed it. At this time, no criminal charges are pending.


The Federal Aviation Administration says a videotaped skydiving sex stunt did not result in a violation of any regulations and the pilot wasn’t distracted during the incident over Kern County.

FAA spokesman Ian Gregor said Thursday that available video evidence confirms the pilot’s account that he was not distracted and the shoot didn’t interfere with his duties.

The video shows part-time skydiving instructor and porn star Alex Torres and the receptionist from Skydive Taft engaging in sex in the plane and after jumping out.
