FAA is out with two separate civil fines for maintenance safety violations.

First one against Alaska Airlines for $210,000 for failing to properly follow procedure and document repairs, while Horizon Air gets a $445,125 fine for operating an aircraft not compliance with FARs.

In Alaska Airlines case FAA alleges that between June 2010 and January 2011 on 10-occasions the carrier performed repairs on 6 Boeing 737 aircraft but failed to comply with and document required deactivation procedures which are safety measure meant to reduce hazards to technicians and prevent damage to the aircraft.

Penalty issued against Horizon Air alleges the carrier operate a Q400 aircraft on 45 flights over 7-days in March 2011 following its failure to comply with required inspection for cracked or corroded engine nacelle fittings.
