A criminal investigation conducted by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) revealed that between October 10, 1995 and December 31, 1998, employees of St. George Aviation (SGA) issued numerous fraudulent A&P mechanic certificates.

Accordingly, all airmen who received a certificate from SGA between October 10, 1995 and December 31, 1998 must be reexamined for their certificate(s), unless an Inspector Authorization has been obtained since the issuance of the certificate(s).  More »
