Re: Request for Additional Information

SPS submitted its forecasted income statement and balance sheet for the first year of its operation. However, no explanation on how the estimated revenues and expenses were developed, a description of the manner in which costs and revenue are allocated, and how the underlying traffic forecasts were made was provided. Please provide adequate explanatory footnotes to the air carrier's first year forecasted income statement and balance sheet.

Please explain why SPS does not anticipate any landing expense during the first year of
operation. Please explain why SPS does not anticipate cost towards Office rent and real estate taxes, if the property is owned.

Response to Information Request

Exhibits 1-6

There are no landing fees at CRQ, and FBO fees are waived with regular gas purchases, thus there
are no landing expense.

The POB, as defined by the FAA as where the primary records are kept, is an office attached to
my home. The FAA has already visited the office location in 2015 and has deemed it, and the
records contained within, acceptable. Thus, there is no rent, and the property taxes are already
covered with the house.

DOT Intent to Dismiss Application

On November 3, 2016, you notified the Department that SPS Air, LLC had begun the process of upgrading its current certificate with the Federal Aviation Administration. In addition, you also stated that you considered SPS' commuter application filed with the Department to be "on hold" until the FAA process is complete.

Almost nine months have elapsed and SPS has not filed updated fitness information in the docket or informed the Department about the status of its FAA certification. The Department fully expects an applicant for commuter authority to be prepared to prosecute its application at the time it is filed. While we are willing to work with applicants, where warranted, and allow additional time to file information, we cannot allow applications to remain pending indefinitely. Furthermore, processing and maintaining incomplete applications delays the Department's ability to process applications from companies that have prepared complete filings and are prepared to complete the steps necessary to commence operations.

In light of the above, we intend to dismiss, without prejudice, SPS' application in Docket OST-2016-0003 within 14 days of this letter, unless the applicant provides updated fitness information that supports its fitness to conduct scheduled passenger operations as a US commuter air carrier.
