I see this a lot. A wealthy doctor or a lawyer buys a small plane because he can, and either it's too much for an inexperienced pilot to handle safely or he does something he had no business doing.

I also read about the wealthy freezing on Mount Everest, being eaten by crocodiles in Australia, being murdered by pirates off Somalia, and so on.
