Federal Contractor Misconduct Database (FCMD)
Operating Aircraft Not Compliant With Federal Aviation Regulations
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposed a $417,500 civil penalty against FedEx for allegedly operating an aircraft that was not in compliance with federal aviation regulations. The FAA alleged that FedEx failed to rebalance a horizontal stabilizer tab control surface on a Boeing 727 after repainting the part. The FAA alleged that FedEx’s failure to perform the rebalancing rendered the aircraft unairworthy, and that the company operated the aircraft on at least 133 flights in that condition.
