Order Dismissing Application

During the course of our review of Air Florida's application, we learned from the Federal Aviation Administration that, on August 10, 2001, the Miami Flight Standards District Office had initiated enforcement action against Air Florida and sent the carrier a Letter of Investigation alleging various violations of the Federal Aviation Regulations in connection with an accident that occurred in Punta Gordo, Florida, on February 14, 2001. At the same time, the FAA initiated two enforcement cases against Mr. Pervez Khan and Mr. Hanif Butt, key persons with Air Florida.' Mr. Khan was the pilot and Mr. Butt was co‑pilot at the time of the accident. Each case alleges numerous violations of Parts 119 and 135.

As a result of the FAA's action revoking Air Florida's Air Carrier Certificate and suspending Mr. Khan's airman certificates, we have decided to dismiss the carrier's application for commuter authority. The FAA's findings that resulted in the revocation and suspension clearly have a negative bearing on any determination we might make as to the carrier's compliance disposition and, thus, its overall fitness. Air Florida has not been in contact with the Department for well over a year, and, without the ability to conduct air transportation operations, it serves no purpose to maintain its application on file. We will, therefore, dismiss Air Florida's application filed in Docket OST‑01‑9214 for commuter authority.
