Says Airline Operated Non-Compliant Aircraft On Nearly 50
The FAA is proposing a $777,000 civil penalty against Horizon
Air Industries for allegedly operating 32 Bombardier Dash-8-400
turboprop aircraft on 49,870 flights when the aircraft were not in
compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations.
The FAA alleged Horizon installed new external lighting systems
on the aircraft, but did not conduct required tests for radio
frequency and electromagnetic interference before returning the
aircraft to service. Horizon operated the aircraft between
Oct. 19, 2009 and Mar. 17, 2010, before the FAA discovered the
compliance problems during routine surveillance. Horizon
immediately completed tests and inspections of all 32 aircraft
before further flights.
Horizon Air has 30 days from receipt of the civil penalty letter
to respond to the agency.
