Order Confirming Oral Action and Issuing Effective Certificates | Word

Based on the above, we determined that Aviation Concepts continued to be fit to provide interstate and foreign charter air transportation. On September 26, we received a copy of Aviation Concepts' required certificate of insurance, and on October 23, we received a copy of its FAA operating authority. Our review of these documents was satisfactory. Under the circumstances, we concluded that there was no reason not to grant the carrier the waiver it requested and make its authority effective prior to the expiration of the six-day waiting period. Thus, on October 23, we orally advised Aviation Concepts that we were making its interstate and foreign certificate authority effective on that date. By this order, we confirm our oral action and take this opportunity to reissue the carrier's certificates to reflect their effective dates.

Order Canceling Interstate Certificate

By Order 2003-10-31, issued October 29, 2003, the Department issued Aviation Concepts, Inc. effective certificates of public convenience and necessity authorizing it to engage in interstate and foreign charter air transportation of persons, property, and mail using large aircraft.

By letter dated February 28, 2008, Aviation Concepts informed the Department that it wished to surrender its certificate authority stating that the air carrier has not operated large aircraft since 2005 and would rather conduct its operations as an air taxi under Part 298 of the Department’s regulations. Moreover, the air carrier states that it has filed the information required by Part 298 to register as an air taxi operator.

In light of the above, we cancel the interstate certificate authority held by Aviation Concepts.

By this order, we cancel the interstate certificate. Cancelation of Aviation Concept’s foreign certificate is subject to Presidential review under 49 U.S.C. 41307 and will be handled in a separate order.
