John David Duggar may be done flying the friendly skies.
Perhaps because they haven’t always been so friendly to him.
According to official records, the second son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar has chosen NOT to renew his pilot’s license; it is now listed 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 for,” John David and Abbie told Celebuzz in January 2022.
“We are so thankful for God’s protection, as we all walked away without injuries when this happened last October.
“We so appreciate the love and care so many have expressed toward us!”
John David is (was?) John
“I’ll put my arm around her, give her a hug, and so we thought it was more appropriate in where we are in this stage of life.”
John David Duggar and his, Abbie, are all smiles in social media photo of the couple.
But John David and his loved ones are fortunate to be alive, and it makes perfect sense to us why he seems to have chosen not to get behind the controls again.
Counting On alums John David Duggar and Abbie Burnett shared this photo taken at Oshkosh 2021 in Wisconsin.
“We welcomed little Charlie into the world last month and have been soaking up newborn snuggles ever since! We are so thankful to God for this precious gift!”
The happy couple initially confirmed they were expecting baby number-two in a special Mother’s Day post in 2022.
“To the little girl who calls me mommy, and our little boy due in late summer, I’ll love you forever!” Abbie captioned a May 8 Instagram snapshot on the couple’s joint account.
