FAA’s heavy cargo fine

THE Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) plans to fine SkyWest Airlines US$160,000 for failing to accurately document cargo and baggage loads.

The airline operated four US flights that left on 3 March this year with incorrect weight balances, according to officials.

SkyWest has 30 days to respond to the FAA from the time it received the civil penalty letter.

SkyWest has paid civil penalties in eight previous cases alleging similar problems of improper weight, balance and loading calculations and documentation.
