FAA proposes to fine Evergreen International Airlines

WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- Federal officials are proposing to fine a major transporter of U.S. military cargo $4.9 million for not properly training their pilots.

The Federal Aviation Administration say Evergreen International Airlines made 232 flights between February and July 2009 on planes equipped with a new flight management system that was different enough from the previous system that required special training for pilots. The FAA said the Evergreen pilots did not complete training ven manuals on the system prior to making the flights. 

Evergreen's headquarters in McMinnville, Oregon declined to comment on the fine.
