Jul 10 15
The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposed a $320,000 civil penalty against SkyWest Airlines for allegedly operating an aircraft that was not in compliance with federal aviation regulations. The FAA alleges SkyWest failed to inspect certain main landing gear components on four Bombardier CL-600 jets at required intervals for wear that could lead to an unsafe condition or failure of a component. SkyWest allegedly operated the aircraft on more than 6,700 flights when the inspections were overdue. SkyWest has 30 days from receipt of the FAA's enforcement letter to respond to the agency.
Federal Aviation Administration Proposes $911,000 Civil Penalty Against SkyWest Airlines
Jul 10 15
The U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposed a $911,000 civil penalty against SkyWest Airlines for allegedly operating two aircraft that were not in compliance with federal aviation regulations. The FAA alleges SkyWest failed to inspect the cargo door skins on two Bombardier CL-600 jets at required intervals. The inspections were required by an Airworthiness Directive (AD) issued in 2006 after cracks were discovered in the aluminum cargo door skin of a CL-600 during fatigue testing. The FAA determined that regular inspections of that type of aircraft for similar cracking could help prevent a situation in which a cracked skin could lead to an accident or unsafe condition. SkyWest allegedly operated the aircraft on a total of 15,969 flights when the inspections were overdue. SkyWest has 30 days from receipt of the FAA's enforcement letter to respond to the agency.
