FAA Proposes $218,700 Civil Penalty Against Resorts World Companies For Allegedly Conducting

Published on : Wednesday, December 7, 2016

FAA-logoThe U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $218,700 civil penalty against Resorts World Aviation and Resorts World Bimini for allegedly flying passengers without an FAA air carrier certificate or with pilots who had not been trained and checked for commercial operations.

The FAA alleges that Resorts World Aviation provided Resorts World Bimini casino players and other guests with nine for-hire flights between July 10 and July 19, 2015.  The flights were between the Miami area and Bimini in the Bahamas.

The companies operated the flights when they did not hold the required FAA certificate to carry passengers for hire or the economic authorization from the DOT to operate as an air carrier, the FAA alleges.  Additionally, the pilots flying the planes had not undergone required training and proficiency checks to conduct the operations involved, the agency alleges.  The FAA alleges that the companies advertised to perform the operations despite not having FAA authorization for the operations.

The companies have asked to meet with the FAA to discuss the case.
