Informal Hearings Under Part 13, Subpart D

Administrative judges from the Office of Adjudication provide informal hearings for the FAA when the law does not require a formal hearing. These hearings relate to orders of compliance, cease and desist orders, orders of denial, and some orders suspending or revoking a certificate of registration. See generally 14 C.F.R. §§ 13.20 and 13.75. An interested party subject to these types of orders must initiate the hearing process by filing a "Request for Hearing" under 14 C.F.R. § 13.35.

These cases are not common, and initial decisions by administrative judges are not precedential. Orders in cases since 2016 are reported here for the convenience of the public.
