John David Duggar Allows Pilot’s License to Expire After Terrifying Plane Crash – UnlistedNews

John David Duggar may be done flying the friendly skies.

Maybe because they haven’t always been so nice to him.

According to official records, the second son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar has chosen NOT to renew his pilot’s license; now appears as expired.

The apparent decision comes after Duggar crashed his Piper PA-30 on October 29, 2021 in Tennessee.

The terrifying accident took place with John David’s wife and daughter on board.

“An emergency landing or any kind of plane crash is a scary thing, but it’s exactly what pilots are trained to do,” John David and Abbie told Celebuzz in January 2022.

“We are so thankful for God’s protection as we all came out unscathed when this happened last October.

“We really appreciate the love and care that so many have expressed towards us!”

John David is (was?) such a passionate pilot that he proposed to Abbie inside an airplane hangar in July 2018.

They exchanged vows that November after Abbie moved to Arkansas.

“We all get to make our choice about what our standards are, and therefore we choose to be able to have some contact versus no contact,” John David said of their courtship during a 2019 episode of Counting On.

“I’ll put my arm around her, give her a hug, so we thought it was more appropriate where we are at this stage of life.”

According to a preliminary report from the National Transportation Safety Board in 2021, there was “substantial” damage to Duggar’s plane… and the NTSB investigation into what happened remains open.

We may never know exactly what happened.

But John David and his loved ones are lucky to be alive, and it makes perfect sense to us why he seems to have chosen not to get behind the controls again.

The spouses are parents of a three-year-old girl named Grace and a nine-month-old boy named Charlie.

“Now we are a family of 4,” the couple said last fall.

“We welcomed little Charlie into the world last month and have been soaking up newborn hugs ever since! We are very grateful to God for this precious gift!”

The happy couple initially confirmed they were expecting baby number two in a special Mother’s Day 2022 post.

“To the girl who calls me mommy and our baby boy due at the end of summer, I will love you forever!” Abbie captioned an Instagram snap from May 8 on the couple’s joint account.
