FAA Proposes $297,000 Civil Penalty Against Air Mods

Charge That The Company Was Out Of Compliance With FARs

The FAA has proposed a $297,000 civil penalty against Air Mods and Repair Corporation of Wilmington, DE, for allegedly operating two general aviation aircraft when they were not in compliance with FARs.

The FAA alleges that an FAA Flight Standards inspection of a proposed flight school at the Air Mods facility at Robbinsville, NJ, revealed maintenance problems with a Piper PA-23 Aztec twin and a single-engine Piper PA-28 Warrior. The FAA told the company repairs were needed before further flight of either aircraft.

The FAA alleges that Air Mods operated the Warrior on 19 subsequent flights between January 22 and March 4, 2009 and the Aztec on six flights from January 21 to February 28, 2009 without making the required repairs to either aircraft.

The company has 30 days from the receipt of the penalty letter to respond to the FAA.
