“CBP management is looking into the matter and the pilot in command of the aircraft has been relieved and reassigned to administrative duties pending completion of the review of the incident.”

Obviously not on "official business." Clearly the pilot and the kid's old man suffered a major lapse in judgment. Guess who's paying the fuel and maintenance cost for that little stunt.

Geez folks. Lighten up a bit. You really want to see this guy lose his job for this? Seriously?

I had that thought as well, But then, if the chopper was scheduled to be up and flying anyway and the school was not a side trip, no harm done. A quick investigation should settle that.

If you are going to do something like this, shouldn’t you use your own helicopter?

If they were using a regularly scheduled practice or test flight, I got no problem with this.

I do question why customs in Prince William County, Virginia needs a helicopter in the first place. More overfunded bureaucratic spending on shiny toys.
