FAA Enforcement Actions

You have worked hard to get into the aviation industry. However, one mark on your record can change everything. You could find yourself blacklisted and unable to further your career. If you are being investigating by the FAA for a violation, or if you have been involved in an airplane accident as defined by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), then you should contact us immediately.


Avoid making a serious mistake following an aviation accident or FAA investigation by downloading a FREE copy of the book, When The FAA Investigates You, written by experienced aviation attorney Michael Pearson. This book has been recently updated to include information on the Pilot's Bill of Rights.


The Basics: What You Need to Know About FAA Enforcement Actions


An FAA enforcement action is an administrative action taken against a certificate for alleged violations of the Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs). The FAA has tremendous power, as they not only write the FAR's, they also interpret and enforce them. The typical steps involved in an enforcement action case include:

  • Notification
  • FAA action
  • FAA order of suspension, revocation, or civil penalty assessment
  • Appeal
  • Hearing before a National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) judge
  • Appeal to the full NTSB

The FAA has tremendous power when it comes to violations of FARs, flying is considered a privilege and NOT A RIGHT, which is why it is so imperative that you obtain assistance from an experienced aviation lawyer at the earliest stage.
