Emery working toward settlement

by Canadian Shipper

Emery Worldwide Airlines is to settle a series of maintenance problems by paying one million dollars in a civil fine to the Federal Aviation Administration.

FAA complaints against Emery included ineffective or inappropriate repairs, pilots flying planes without the appropriate licenses, and failures to fix reoccurring problems on planes.

The cargo carrier has entered the agreement so that it can resume flying by as early as next year after the FAA grounded its fleet five weeks ago.

Emery has six months to make the changes, and if the FAA deems the corrections incomplete or inadequate within eight months, it may take formal enforcement action.
