Executive Airlines fined for alleged maintenance lapse
By Gay Nagle Myers
30 March, 2011

The FAA is proposing a $550,000 fine against Executive Airlines of San Juan for failing to complete required maintenance inspections on two of its ATR-72 twin turboprops in June 2009.

Executive is a subdiary of AMR Corp. and is part of the American Eagle system.

The FAA alleges that the carrier operated the two aircraft on at least 35 flights between June 13 and 19, 2009, and had exceeded the mandated number of flight hours for a re-inspection.

Executive has 30 days to respond to the FAA’s enforcement letter.
