Rodney Stich (born April 11, 1923[1]) is an American author and former Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) investigator (1962–1968), claiming instances of corruption in the aviation industry.


According to Burnett's Conspiracy Encyclopedia, "his work led him to believe that there was major corruption at the heart of the aviation business".[2] His "whistle-blowing" campaign was carried out for over 30 years, in which he filed his own "federal actions" in courts throughout the United States. His book Unfriendly Skies (1968) led to a "tale of Job-like proportions in which Stich doggedly filed private lawsuits against the FAA and eventually lost his business, money, home, and ultimately his liberty."[2] In 1986 he was imprisoned for six months for contempt of court.[2]

Christopher Story's conspiracy journal, International Currency Review (ICR), considers that Stich was a pioneer in exposing the crimes committed by the United States government and their concealment. ICR compared the United States federal government actions against Stich to political repression in the Soviet Union.[3]
