About this Order
This consent order concerns the unlawful holding out of direct air transportation by Air Ambulance Worldwide, Inc., (AAW) an indirect air carrier specializing in air ambulance services. AAW’s conduct exceeded the scope of the economic authority conferred in Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) Order 83-1-36 and violated 49 U.S.C. § 41101, the Department’s economic licensing requirement for air carriers. Those violations also constituted an unfair and deceptive trade practice and unfair method of competition in violation of 49 U.S.C. § 41712. This consent order directs AAW to cease and desist from such further violations and assesses AAW a compromise civil penalty of $12,000.
