FAA Withdraws Emergency Suspension for Aviation Services Inc. Repair Station

Press release date: Apr 01, 2014

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has withdrawn the emergency order that suspended the repair station certificate of Aviation Service, Inc. (ASI), a Lexington, Kentucky-based aircraft repair station.

The FAA withdrew the order on March 11 after ASI met the requirement to establish an FAA-approved Employee Training Program (ETP).

The FAA issued the emergency order suspending ASI’s certificate on February 6, after the company failed to establish the required training program, and the agency determined that an emergency existed related to the safety of the traveling public.

An FAA-approved ETP is critical to ensure that employees performing maintenance for a repair station are capable of completing such work.
