Matthew Martino warned ‘Don’t Go For It’
AllStar film producer/author Matthew C Martino has been warned by border officials that he isn’t permitted to fly any aircraft during his reported 17day visit to the US where he will promote his books Lets Fly and Go For It.
The 21year old star landed at Sanford Orlando airport on Tuesday (22nd July) in the early afternoon and was thought to have been whisked off to his hotel where he is staying during his time in Orlando. Martino had said during a pre-flight interview at Manchester Airport ‘I want this trip to change people’s outlook on me and there will be no trouble this time’. Martino shared a pre take-off selfie on a friend’s Instagram.
Martino has grown controversial over the past few months and this all began in late 2013 when staff at Biggin Hill Airport reported that Lets Fly author flew planes he didn’t have ratings or licensing for and was allowed to do so by pilots of his former private charter firm ‘F5 Air’. After this 2014 saw Martino being accused of throwing an f-word rant at a BA employee in first class lounge at Heathrow Airport and after which in February a jet the 21year old and pals chartered was stopped and searched at Stansted by authorities.
Although Martino is in the US on business authorities have warned him he could be deported if he breaches the warning to stay away from cockpits.
Martino has a strong team around him during his US tour which includes publicist Carol Suvarov, a bodyguard, a business advisor & a make-up & fashion girl. So let’s hope they will all work hard to keep the controversial star out of trouble. This report comes amid claims that Martino’s publicist has said he isn’t allowed any interviews during his time in the US.
