The FAA has referred its civil penalty case against Platinum Jet Management to the U.S. Attorney General in the office of the Department of Justice for further action. Platinum Jet Management and the FAA last month apparently failed to reach a compromise agreement on the agency’s proposed July 2005 $1.86 million civil penalty against the company for allegedly operating numerous for-hire flights without an operating certificate. Among those flights was the Challenger involved in the aborted-takeoff overrun at Teterboro Airport in February last year. The U.S. Attorney’s office will consider filing a lawsuit to enforce the penalty and to collect the full $1.86 million.
