FAA Proposes $230,000 Civil Penalty against Continental Airlines
FORT WORTH, Texas — The Federal Aviation Administration is proposing a civil penalty of $230,000 against Continental Airlines Inc., of Houston for allegedly operating a Boeing 767 on 22 revenue flights when it was not in compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations.
The FAA alleges that on Aug. 12, 2008, Continental replaced the nose landing gear wheel and tire assembly on a B-767, but failed to install the required axle washer despite warnings in the maintenance manual and on the tire assembly itself. The warning said failing to install the washer could lead to failure of the wheel bearing.
FAA inspectors discovered the violation during a records check and noted three identical earlier violations.
Continental has 30 days from receipt of the civil penalty letter to respond to the agency.
