The FAA has proposed a $205,250 civil penalty against Circor Aerospace, Inc., a Sylmar, Calif.-based aircraft repair station, for allegedly violating drug and alcohol testing regulations.

The agency alleges that between September 2010 and December 2011, Circor failed to conduct required pre-employment drug tests and did not wait until test results were verified as negative before hiring 29 people to perform safety-sensitive aircraft maintenance work.

The FAA also alleges the company failed to include two individuals in its random drug and alcohol testing pool.
