UPDATE: Waterloo pilot pleads not guilty on federal charges

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A Waterloo pilot with dual citizenship in Saudi Arabia says he's not guilty to federal charges that he lied about his flying experience.

Fahad Nabeel Hussein Al-Daous was ordered Thursday to surrender his passport and stay in Iowa until the trial. He faces two counts of making false statements to the Federal Aviation Administration. 

Officials say Al-Daous lied about the number of "pilot in command" flight hours when he applied for two instrument licenses last year. An FAA database shows Al-Daous is a certified private pilot. 

Al-Daous' trial is scheduled for April.
