Helicopter Tour Company Allegedly Not Authorized For
The FAA has proposed a $330,000 civil penalty against
Heli-Dudes LLC, of Salt Lake City, for allegedly operating
sightseeing helicopter rides for hire when it was not authorized to
do so, a violation of Federal Aviation Regulations.
The FAA alleges that Heli-Dudes did not have an FAA operating
certificate or letter of authorization when it conducted 30
sightseeing flights for hire between Feb. 6 and Feb 14, 2010, using
a Robinson R-22, a two-seat, piston engine-powered helicopter.
The FAA denied two Heli-Dudes applications for a Letter of
Authorization in January and March, 2010. The first denial
was because the company submitted the wrong employee drug-testing
certificate. The second denial came because Heli-Dudes conducted
for-hire flights when it was not authorized to do so.
Heli-Dudes has 30 days from receipt of the FAA's enforcement
letter to respond to the agency.
