Posted 8 August 2017 · Add Comment

A panel has upheld a decision to fine First Nation Airways for safety violations, after one of its pilots was found to have let his medical certificate lapse, reports ch-aviation.

The expired certification cost the airline NGN32 million (USD101,000) and the pilot NGN1.5 million (USD4,800).

 

"The PIC operated with an expired license from the 2nd to 8th November, 2016, and there are indications that the airline knew the PIC did not have a valid license. This is a very serious safety issue. Therefore, the moderate sanctions applied by the NCAA were reasonable under the circumstances," the panel found.
