The FAA is seeking a $65,000 civil penalty from fractional-share operator Flight Options for shipping a package that leaked a hazardous material. According to the agency, Flight Options offered "a fiberboard box containing isopropyl alcohol, a flammable liquid, to UPS for transportation by air from Cleveland to Las Vegas, Sept. 9, 2009." The package leaked, and UPS employees discovered the leakage at the company's Louisville, Ky. sorting hub.
