NEW YORK – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is proposing a $150,000 civil penalty against Talon Air, Inc., of Farmingdale, New York, for allegedly violating Federal Aviation Regulations by allowing four pilots to fly without proper training or examinations.

The FAA alleges three of the pilots did not undergo recurrent training or receive competency flight checks within the required periods of time. The agency alleges the fourth pilot’s initial training was conducted by an unqualified person. As a result, none of the pilots were qualified to fly the charter carrier’s Hawker 4000 aircraft.

The FAA alleges that collectively, the pilots flew at least 64 times between October 23, 2011 and July 9, 2012 while they were unqualified to serve as on-demand flight crew members.

Talon Air has 30 days from the receipt of the FAA’s enforcement letter to respond to the agency.
