SEATTLE – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is proposing a $150,000 civil penalty against AAR Aircraft Services Inc. of Oklahoma City, Okla., for alleged aircraft maintenance violations.

The FAA alleges AAR used an unqualified repairman to perform at least 18 maintenance tasks on a major air carrier’s aircraft between September 2012 and May 2013. The FAA discovered the alleged violations during an inspection.

The FAA alleges the repairman performed maintenance that he was not authorized to perform by his repairman certificate.

AAR has 30 days from the receipt of the FAA's enforcement letter to respond to the Agency.
