If a private individual owns a plane and wants to crash it, witholding keys to their DRM isn't going to stop them. So what exactly does your DRM accomplish?
Your scare scenario just doesn't make sense to me.
Regarding legal restrictions, do you have a concrete example of a current FAA regulation that requires DRMed flight-management systems?
