Manin v. NTSB, No. 09-1157

FAA Revocation of License Affirmed

In Manin v. NTSB, No. 09-1157, a petition for review of a National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) order affirming the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) emergency revocation of his airline transport pilot, flight instructor, flight engineer, and first class airman medical certificates for failure to provide correct information about his criminal history on a series of applications for renewal of his medical certificate, the court granted the petition where the NTSB's decision departed from agency precedent without explanation.

 

As the court wrote:  "Michael George Manin petitions for review of a National Transportation Safety Board ("NTSB" or "Board") order affirming the Federal Aviation Administration's ("FAA") emergency revocation of his airline transport pilot, flight instructor, flight engineer, and first class airman medical certificates for failure to provide correct information about his criminal history on a series of applications for renewal of his medical certificate. Because the NTSB's decision departed from agency precedent without explanation and was inconsistent with recent case law in this circuit, we vacate the Board's order and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion."
