Woods Air certificate revoked, hearing scheduled

Posted: Sunday, June 04, 2000

PALMER (AP) -- A hearing has been scheduled on the Federal Aviation Administration's decision to revoke the license of a Palmer air carrier.

The federal agency disclosed Friday that the Woods Air Service had its air carrier certificate revoked April 19. The company and its Woods Air Fuel unit both ceased operations when the order was issued.

The agency alleges that the companies used unqualified people to perform maintenance and used an unauthorized person to approve an aircraft for return to service.

The FAA also said the company engaged in careless or reckless operations that endangered the life or property of others, falsified maintenance records and operated unairworthy planes.

The hearing will be held June 13.
