Audit ordered for President Leath's flights

Posted: Updated:

The Iowa Board of Regents order an audit of flights Iowa State President Steven Leath took while using school aircraft.

President Leath had a hard landing in a SR22 plane owned by the University on his way back from vacation in North Carolina.

Following a regular Board of Regents meeting, the board held a special conference to address those flight concerns.

President Leath damaged the plane and paid for the damage, but the accident lead to questions about whether he was using the plane for personal travel.

"One of the things I wanted to say, in light of recent events, regarding Iowa State and their planes, that frankly I'm extremely disappointed. We at the Board of Regents take the use of University resources very seriously. In more than a few instances the decision to use the plane appears to be questionable at best," Board of Regents President Bruce Rastetter said.

President Leath says he wants to be transparent in the audit process.
