FAA: Rudi Dekkers' Lears Flew Uncertified
Rudi Dekker, owner of Huffman Aviation Services in Venice (FL),
is in trouble again.
Huffman is where 9/11 hijackers Mohamed Atta and Marwan
al-Shehhi trained before attacking the World Trade Center and
Pentagon three years ago. But it's Dekker's former company,
Ambassador Aviation, that's now accused of flying passengers for
hire without an air carrier operating certificate.
The FAA and federal prosecutors accuse Dekker and the pilots of
three other Ambassador-operated Learjets of flying 26 times without
the proper certification. Prosecutors in a Fort Myers (FL) federal
court want a judge to fine Dekker $11,000 for each episode. That
would come to a total of $286,000.
Federal prosecutors wouldn't comment on the allegations, except
to say they're civil in nature and not related to the 9/11
Dekker couldn't be reached for comment.
