FAA revokes Broken Wings' repair station certificate

US Department of Transportation´s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has announced it has issued an emergency order that revokes Alaska-based Broken Wings Aviation LLC´s repair station certificate for allegedly conducting maintenance work it was not authorized to perform, the company said.

Broken Wings was only authorized to work on Beechcraft King Air 200 airplanes and was not rated to work on instruments. The FAA alleges that on four occasions between June 2019 and November 2019, the company conducted unauthorized maintenance operations on a Cessna 172s landing gear, brakes and fuel-quantity indicator, which is an instrument.

Broken Wings Aviation must immediately surrender its certificate to the FAA and faces fines up USD 1,501.00 for each day it fails to do so.
