SKYWEST FINED $359,000 BY FAA

The US Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) has proposed $359,000 in civil penalties against SkyWest Airlines for alleged violations.

The FAA complaint includes a penalty of $220,000 for failure to document heavy checked bags, motorized mobility aids and a heavy shipment carried in the cargo compartment of the company’s passenger aircraft. As a result, the company operated the aircraft on five flights between April 21 and May 25, 2010 with incorrect weight and balance data. The FAA alleges the violations occurred because the carrier’s employees failed to follow required procedures for documenting cargo carried on revenue passenger flights.

The other two proposed civil penalties are for allegedly operating two Bombardier Regional Jet aircraft when they were not in compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations.
