The Kientzy Law firm knows that when you receive a certified letter from the FAA you typically are not receiving very good news. We have advised, assisted, and defended many private, commercial, and airline transport pilots, and A&P mechanics during the FAA enforcement action process.

Simply stated, the process can be broken down into three separate stages: (1) the event that triggers the investigation or the FAA’s notification to the airman of the investigation; (2) the FAA Action; and (3) judicial review.

Understanding the process and strategies available at different stages of the representation can go a long way to alleviating the stress associated with the Letter of Investigation, Notice of Proposed Certificate Action, Civil Penalty, and Order of Suspension or Revocation.
