Why Did I Receive a Letter from the FAA?
The FAA Enforcement Division initiates legal enforcement actions to address noncompliance by regulated entities and persons including pilot certificate actions (FAA Emergency Order), civil penalty actions, and informal procedures and settlements. In many cases, a FAA enforcement action stems from a piloting issue which may involve a complex technical or airmanship situation.
Examples of situations that may prompt pilot certificate actions:
- The FAA discovers medical information that was not reported on your application
- The FAA discovers you have not reported a DUI
- An anonymous call to the FAA Hotline alleging wrongdoing or threat
- Violation of Federal Aviation Regulations
- Failed Drug Test
