The vaper of the flight to Tulum loses her pilot's license
Vanessa Sicotte – aka the girl who vaped on board the famous Sunwing charter flight to Tulum filled influencer at the end of 2021 – had his airplane pilot license suspended for 21 days and fined $1,750 for not wearing a mask. #Oops.
She made the announcement in posts on her Instagram account on Monday.
Taking the opportunity (or her “stories”) to come back to this evening, Vanessa specified that she “assumes the consequences” of her actions.
“Humans have [sic] the right to make mistakes. We all do. The important thing is not [sic] to do them twice. Well [sic] I assure you that I will not do it twice. It will have an impact on my reputation in aviation for a while, I am well aware of that,” she wrote.
Despite this, the Quebecer says she has no intention of “lowering the arms” about his career.
“I will continue my journey to acquire my professional [sic] business licenses. I will work hard and hard like all the pilots in this world,” she says.
Vanessa says she obtained lower amounts of fines and a period of license suspension than what was initially planned by Transport Canada.
The period of suspension of his license had been set at 30 days and the amount of his fine to be paid for non-compliance with sanitary measures at $2,500.
A controversial flight
The viral images of the “party” where we saw Vanessa vaping illegally in the air while wearing sunglasses created a real shock wave in the media here and abroad.
An investigation had also been launched by Ottawa to shed light on the events. In March 2022, Transport Canada imposed a first series of six fines on members of the group.
Air carriers Air Canada and Air Transat both refused to bring all of the partygoers back to Montreal .
