Operational Control Workshops Scheduled
Starting with a session on June 7 in Anchorage, Alaska, the FAA has scheduled more briefings on its proposed guidance policy on air carrier operational control. FAA officials will meet with charter companies to discuss this issue and the agency’s planned new charter Operations Specifications A008. The issue surfaced after the Darby Aviation/Platinum Jet Challenger accident at Teterboro, N.J., in February last year and following other FAA enforcement actions against companies flying allegedly illegal charters. The next briefings are set for June 13, Chicago; June 20, Seattle; and June 29, Dallas.
