Darby Aviation is the latest to feel the wrath of the FAA in the wake of the Challenger runway overrun accident at Teterboro Airport (see page 58). On March 23 the agency ordered “the indefinite suspension” of the Muscle Shoals, Ala. charter operator’s Part 135 certificate. The agency said in part that by “selling, assigning and/or leasing its air carrier certificate to Platinum [Jet Management] and relinquishing operational control
of flights purportedly conducted under its air carrier certificate to Platinum, Darby (dba AlphaJet) had abrogated its obligation to provide the highest degree of safety in the public interest.”
