The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has proposed a civil penalty of $142,750 against GoJet Airlines, LLC for allegedly violating drug and alcohol testing regulations.

On December 2, 2013, the FAA conducted an inspection of GoJet's Antidrug and Alcohol Misuse Prevention Program.

According to the agency, its inspectors discovered that GoJet allowed six employees to perform safety-sensitive jobs without being included in the company's random drug and alcohol testing pool as required by federal regulations. The employees included four pilot trainees and two aircraft dispatcher trainees.

Additionally, the FAA alleges that two GoJet employees selected for random drug and alcohol testing were given drug but not alcohol tests, which also violates federal regulations.

GoJet has 30 days from receipt of the FAA's enforcement letter to respond to the agency.

GoJet Airlines currently operates 220 daily flights providing service to over 60 destinations under the United Express and Delta Connection names.
