FAA proposes a $400,000 civil penalty against Atlantic Southeast Airlines for operating a CRJ aircraft when not in compliance with FARs.

FAA alleges ASA operated a CRJ on 49 revenue flights over 8-day period without an authorized signature on the airworthiness release and without an appropriate entry in the aircraft’s flight discrepancy log following maintenance work.

Quoting LAXintl (Thread starter):

This appears to be a pure process/paperwork discrepancy. There is no evidence in the FAA press release that there was anything actually incorrect with the aircraft and no evidence of a "safety violation."

It took them 2 years to issue a fine over one airplane being out of compliance for 8 days. Wow.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Failure to adhere to FARs is considered a safety violation in FAA lingua franca.

Lack of paperwork can itself become a tragic broken link in the safety chain.

It's just a proposal and not yet a "set in stone" fine. Seems as though the FAA fines an airline every other month, nothing to see here.
