About this Order

This consent order concerns violations by Aviation Advantage, Inc., (AAI) of the licensing requirements of 49 U.S.C. § 41101 and public charter regulation in 14 CFR Part 380, as well as violations by the company of 49 U.S.C. § 41712, which prohibits unfair and deceptive practices and unfair methods of competition. In 2009, AAI advertised public charter flights, through its agents, without complying with the disclosure requirements in 14 CFR Part 380. In 2010, AAI engaged in air transportation without holding requisite economic authority from the Department of Transportation (Department) in violation of 49 U.S.C. §§ 41101 and 41712. This order also concerns separate violations of 49 U.S.C. § 41712 arising from AAI’s marketing and selling of air transportation on a direct air carrier that did not hold economic authority from the Department to engage in air transportation. This order requires AAI to cease and desist from such violations and assesses the company a compromise civil penalty of $150,000.
