WASHINGTON D.C. (Inside INdiana Business) — An Indianapolis charter plane carrier faces millions in fines by the Federal Aviation Administration for allegedly directing illegal charter flights. The FAA has proposed more than $2.1 million in fines against Indy Jet Management LLC and associated parties.
The FAA says the proposed fines are for Indy Jet Management LLC, Gary Aletto, GSA Investment Inc., AirXL LLC, Excel 2 LLC, Excel 3 LLC, Excel 4 LC, CJI LLC, Indy Bravo LLC, Bradley Cable and Citation Management LLC.
The FAA alleges between March 2017 and February 2018, the parties conducted approximately 168 paid-passenger flights in several Cessna CE-500 series airplanes without the proper FAA operating or air carrier certificates, and ran flights without proper specifications.
The FAA also says unqualified pilots who did not complete training, testing and competency checks were used to conduct the flights. The agency says all parties have 30 days to respond after receiving the enforcement letters.
