2011 Air Charter Summit Continued from page 32 Paul Lange of the Law Offices of Paul A. Lange shared the most common Part 135 violations to a captivated audience. FAA Regulatory Review FAA Director of Flight Standards Service John Allen opened the FAA regulatory briefing by indicating that changes to technology have increased the FAA’s workload. Budget constraints could lead the agency to broaden the existing designee program, which is currently common in engineering, maintenance and airworthiness. He also indicated that any furlough caused by government-wide budget issues or the expiration of the FAA’s current continuing resolution could lead to significant delays in air carrier certification and other FAA activities. Allen also provided an update on flight, duty and rest regulations. He said that the FAA is working through public comments on the proposed rules for Part 121 in order to publish a final rule by July 31. He said it is likely that future rulemaking efforts will propose extending the Part 121 rule to Part 135; but with current budget concerns, it is unlikely this rulemaking will take place in the next few years. Allen closed his session with an update on rulemaking regarding Safety Management Systems (SMS). He indicated a proposed rule will be published for Part 121 air carriers first, with Part 135 air carriers and other air agencies to follow. Answer: It depends. An accusation of falsification should meet the following qualifications: 1. It must be a false representation; 2. It must be in reference to a material fact; and 3. It must be made with knowledge of its falsity. If the pilot knew or should have known that he was not qualified to fly the aircraft, this could very well meet the burden for falsification. Remember, falsification is the #1 FAA-deadly sin. Revocation of the airman’s certificate is one possible enforcement action. Then again, so is incarceration. Bottom line: Don’t do it! Forum with the FAA Part 135 Branch Several representatives from AFS-250, the FAA’s Part 135 branch, gave a brief presentation and then answered attendees’ questions. Hot topics of this session included transfer of training; iPads in the cockpit; and flight and duty rules for Part 135. Of particular interest is the ongoing concern within the Part 135 industry regarding the transference of training or providing credit for training from another air carrier. No clear guidance helps air carriers determine what previous training, if any, can be accepted when considering the training requirements of a new hire pilot. The AFS-250 representatives suggested guidance will be issued in the next month or two. Most Frequently Issued FAA Part 135 Violations Joseph Conte of the FAA’s Office of the Chief Counsel, Enforcement Division, and Paul Lange of The Law Offices of Paul A. Lange shared the most common Part 135 violations. Drug and alcohol testing, maintenance recordkeeping, and hazardous materials violations top the list. Lange focused on the importance of recordkeeping. He gave the attendees three tips: Pay attention to detail. Ask yourself – is there anything else you should do to make your records clearer? Are your records bullet proof? Audit your own recordkeeping systems on a regular basis. Conte discussed falsification of records. For example, if a pilot logs SIC time in any aircraft that pilot is not qualified to fly, then is that a recordkeeping violation or falsification? Aviation Business Journal | 3rd Quarter 2011 Bankruptcy has its Clawbacks Ronald L. Daugherty, Esq., of Salmon, Ricchezza, Singer & Turchi LLP, shared with attendees strategies to avoid being subject to clawbacks relating to a customer’s business failure. In the event of a bankruptcy, a creditor can be forced to return recent payments from the defunct company. Daugherty suggested the following methods to help protect you from a clawback: 1. Receive payment at the time of the service. 2. Get pre-paid for services. 3. Cash checks immediately upon receipt. Continued on page 35 33
