Carlsbad airline’s FAA certification remains uncertain

CARLSBAD — The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) review of Carlsbad’s prospective airline, California Pacific Airlines (CP Air), remains uncertain after the airline partially resubmitted its certification application materials. 

The FAA required CP Air to resubmit its application for certification by Sept. 13 after finding its original materials “incomplete” and “inaccurate,” according to an Aug. 7 letter the FAA sent to CP Air’s founder Ted Vallas.

CP Air provided the FAA with a partial submission before the deadline, but did not submit a full certification application, according to the Ian Gregor, public affairs manager for the FAA’s Pacific Region

Consequently, CP Air’s certification has not been terminated, however the FAA has not determined how it will proceed with its review of the airline’s application, Gregor said.

CP Air representatives and FAA officials remain in communication over the pending application, he said.
