FAA proposes civil penalties against American Eagle, Atlantic Southeast
US FAA proposed a total of $275,500 in civil penalties against two regional airlines and an MRO provider. The agency called for a $77,500 fine against Dallas-based American Eagle Airlines because its line maintenance contractor at Richmond, Va., allegedly used uncalibrated tools to test the anti-freeze used for de-icing aircraft. Also, FAA alleges the tools were not specified for use by the airline’s FAA-approved general maintenance manual and its ground de-icing program. The alleged violations took place between Feb. 13 and March 9, 2010, FAA stated.
