Actor Harrison Ford will reportedly not be punished for landing on an airport taxiway and flying over a passenger jet two months ago.

In February, Ford — an amateur pilot who owns several aircraft — mistakenly landed his single-engine Husky plane on a taxiway instead of a runway at John Wayne Airport in Orange County, Calif. He flew right over an American Airlines plane that was slowly taxiing.

According to NBC News, the FAA will not impose a fine or force Ford to undergo more pilot training.

NBC reported that Ford apologized to the FAA and met with its investigators after the incident. The agency could have opted to take away Ford's license to operate aircraft.

"The FAA has completed its investigation of the incident in which a pilot landed on a taxiway at John Wayne Airport on Feb. 13," the FAA said in a statement, NBC reports. "The FAA does not comment on cases involving individual airmen. You can file a FOIA request for any letters we issued in connection with this case."
