FAA Revokes LAB Operating Certificate

 - August 29, 2008, 10:23 AM

The FAA in late July issued an emergency order of revocation to LAB Flying Service of Juneau, Alaska, effectively shutting down the 52-year-old carrier, which served Alaskans with a fleet of Piper singles and twins, a Britten-Norman Islander and Helio Courier. The revocation order cited a number of discrepancies with LAB’s maintenance
of the fleet, including failure to comply with Airworthiness Directives and required inspection items as well as improperly documented maintenance and multiple cases of FAA inspector-observed maintenance discrepancies.
