What Is Aircraft Hijacking?
Aircraft hijacking, also known as aircraft piracy, is defined by 49 U.S. Code § 46502 as “seizing or exercising control of an aircraft in the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States by force, violence, threat of force or violence, or any form of intimidation, and with wrongful intent.” It is important to note that, in matters of aircraft hijacking, even the threat of force or violence can lead to a conviction; also, a failed attempt or even just conspiring to commit aircraft hijacking can result in a federal aircraft hijacking conviction.

Aircraft Hijacking Is a Federal Offense
Among other definitions, the hijacking of aircraft in the special jurisdiction of the United States involves American civil aircrafts, American armed forces aircrafts, other aircrafts within the United States, and any aircraft outside of the U.S. that last departed from or is scheduled to next arrive in the United States. Any incident of aircraft piracy meeting these qualifications will likely be tried in federal court by prosecutors who will at minimum seek 20 years in prison upon conviction. If an individual has died as a result of federal aircraft hijacking, the penalty becomes life in prison or the death penalty.
