WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $203,100 civil penalty against GEE-BEE Aeroproducts of Palm Desert, Calif., related to the alleged manufacturing, advertising and

installation of unapproved parts.

GEE-BEE did not have required approvals or authorizations for producing parts for installation on FAA-certificated aircraft. Nevertheless, GEE-BEE produced at least four different types of such parts, the FAA alleges.

The parts included engine seals and landing gear door seal kits. The FAA in 2000 had issued an Unapproved Parts Notification for these products.

The FAA further alleges that GEE-BEE advertised on its website approximately 22 different types of unapproved parts for sale and installation on FAA-certificated aircraft.

In October 2017, the FAA issued a revised Unapproved Parts Notification to include these parts.

The FAA alleges that GEE-BEE continued to advertise five products after the agency had issued a Letter of Rejection and the revised Unapproved Parts Notification that included those products.

GEE-BEE has asked to meet with the FAA to discuss the case.
