FT. WORTH, Texas – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $509,180 civil penalty against Martinaire Aviation, LLC, of Addison, Texas, for allegedly violating the Hazardous Material

Regulations.

The FAA alleges the cargo carrier failed to comply with Notification to Pilot-In-Command, or NOPIC, requirements for hazardous materials on board its aircraft for 43 flights between Oct. 1, 2013 and Dec. 3, 2013. The cargo included toxic, corrosive and flammable materials, as well as ammunition.

“NOPICs document critical information about hazardous materials,” said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta.  “Their purpose is to provide pilots and emergency responders with complete information about hazardous materials on aircraft for emergency response purposes.”

The FAA discovered the alleged violations during a comprehensive hazardous materials inspection at the company’s headquarters.

Martinaire has asked to meet with the FAA to discuss the case.
