FAA Suspends Certificate of Arizona-Based Sawyer Aviation

Wednesday, April 17, 2024

WASHINGTON - The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued an emergency order suspending the certificate of Sawyer Aviation of Scottsdale, Arizona, for lacking required personnel. 

The FAA alleges that the charter operator has not had a director of maintenance since Oct. 21, 2023, and a chief pilot since Dec. 1, 2023. The suspension will continue until the company has qualified personnel in place. 

Sawyer Aviation must immediately surrender its certificate and faces a $16,630 penalty for each day it fails to do so.
