FAA Proposes $341,893 Fine Against Nebraska-based 93 Air for Alleged Illegal Charter Operations
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has proposed a $341,893 civil penalty against Nebraska-based 93 Air for allegedly conducting illegal charter flights.
The FAA alleges that between October 2018 and September 2019, 93 Air conducted approximately 32 paid passenger-carrying flights in a single-engine Pilatus PC-12/45 without the required air carrier certificate or operations specifications that outline what a company is authorized to do.
The FAA further alleges the company used unqualified pilots for the 32 flights who did not complete required training, testing and competency checks.
93 Air has 30 days to respond to the FAA after receiving the agency’s enforcement letter.
