Application for Commuter Air Carrier Authorization - Bookmarked

Key Lime requests that it be found fit to operate as a commuter air carrier and that it be issued a commuter air carrier authorization so that it may provide scheduled passenger service between Denver's Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (BJC) and Grand Junction, Colorado (GJT). Key Lime plans to conduct twice daily (Monday through Friday) scheduled service using one 18-seat Fairchild Metro 23 aircraft.

Key Lime has evolved over the last 12 years from a single-aircraft cargo operation to one of the largest and most reliable operators within the UPS network. The Company now operates cargo and passenger service for numerous companies, educational institutions and individuals, as well as provides an effective and valuable link between Denver and the Western Slope for business and personal travelers.

Re: Request for Extension to Respond to Information Request

Further to my discussion with Scott Faulk of your staff on March 1, 2010, indicating that such a request would be acceptable to the Department in light of the status of Key Lime Air Corporation's Part 121 certificate application with FAA, Key Lime respectfully requests that it be granted a two week extension until March 19, 2010 to respond to the Information Request attached to the Department's letter dated February 23, 2010.

Re: Final Request for Additional Information

By letter dated January 5, 2010, the Department informed you that Key Lime Air Corporation had not yet responded fully to the Department's June 29, 2009, Request for Additional Information. That letter contained an Information Request, which listed the areas where further and/or clarifying information was still needed in order for us to fully prosecute Key Lime's application. In that letter, we asked that you respond fully, in Docket OST-2009-0116, within 30 days, or by February 4, 2010. To our knowledge, no such filing has been submitted to the docket.

Should Key Lime not respond fully to our Information Request, copy attached, by March 5, 2010, we intend to dismiss Key Lime's application for failure to prosecute its application

Request of DOT for Submission of Additional Information

This letter follows our telephone conversation of October 4, 2011, concerning the application of Key Lime Air Corporation. As I noted in our discussion, on March 21, 2011, we received the additional information that you submitted to the Department via e-mail; however, that information has not been placed in the public docket (Docket OST-2009-0116). Until that information is submitted in the docket, we are not able to consider it in our evaluation of the pending application. Thus, Key Lime's application remains substantially incomplete. We direct Key Lime to file the updated fitness information in the docket, within 30 days of this letter, or by December 5, 2011. Should Key Lime not submit the additional information by this date, we intend to dismiss Key Lime's application for failure to prosecute its application.

DOT Request for Additional Information

First, the Federal Aviation Administration has informed us that Key Lime has changed some of its key personnel. Therefore, we request that Key Lime submit to the Department an updated list of its key management and technical personnel, as well as resumes for any persons for whom such information has not previously been submitted and the corresponding compliance information required by 14 CFR Part 204. Second, with respect to Key Lime's finances, we request that the applicant provide income statements for calendar years 2010 and 2011, and a balance sheet for the company at December 31, 2011. Additionally, please provide updated projected expenses for the applicant's proposed operations, as well as updated pre-operating expenses. Also discuss any changes to the applicant's current or proposed operations, including its fleet of aircraft. Lastly, we request that Key Lime submit updated compliance information for the company, if any, as required by 14 CFR Part 204.

Issued and Served July 6, 2012

Order 2012-8-11

- Commuter Air Carrier Authority - Rocky Mountain Metro Airport-Grand Junction, CO

Issued and Served August 7, 2012

Final Order

By Order 2012-7-5, issued July 6, 2012, we directed all interested persons to show cause why we should not make final our tentative findings and conclusions that Key Lime Air Corporation is fit, willing, and able to provide scheduled passenger service as a commuter air carrier using small aircraft1 pursuant to Part 135 of the Federal Aviation Regulations.

Order 2012-8-19
OST-2009-0116
- Commuter Air Carrier Authority - Rocky Mountain Metro Airport-Grand Junction, CO

Issued and Served August 17, 2012

Final Order - Erratum

By Order 2012-8-11, issued August 7, 2012, we indicated that we were making final our tentative findings that Key Lime Air Corporation “is fit, willing, and able to provide scheduled passenger service as a commuter air carrier using small aircraft pursuant to Part 135 of the Federal Aviation Regulations.” The ordering paragraph also reflected this same restriction on Key Lime’s operations. However, our tentative findings did not propose to limit the air carrier’s operations to Part 135. We are issuing this erratum to delete language referencing a Part 135 restriction on Key Lime’s operations.
