Exclamation Trans States MX

/rant

...is going for the record of how many times they can ground a fleet of airplanes over paperwork/non-compliance. Second time in a month that half our fleet has been grounded over mis-handled or simply forgotten paperwork. We've got 13 airplanes down right now with more to come tonight I'm hearing...it's like they're saying "here FAA, come yank our certificate!"

Any other skiers have any more info?

Deja-vu... With example after example of blatant disregard and negligence, I honestly don't know how the FAA has not taken serious action. I presume it is only a matter of time.

Has the media got a hold of this one yet? This is just what we need in the news after the Colgan incident.

The planes we've been getting back from TSA have been HORRENDOUS maintenance-wise. I wouldn't allow any of my loved ones on TSA due to their slipshod maintenance. This is not a shot at their pilots, for they are victims as well and I feel for them having to risk their lives every day on these aircraft.

In the interest of the safety of the flying public, TSA should be grounded until they can prove their maintenance is at an acceptable level and then they should remain under EXTREME scrutiny for an extended period of time. This may be the next accident to give the regional industry a black eye, only now it would involve bad maintenance, but still drag down the FAA's lack of oversight the way Buffalo did.

Gojet too, but that's a different company

(with the same mechanics turning the wrenches and whipping the pencils)
