More Turbulence for Lauderdale Airline

The Federal Aviation Administration has been investigating Gulfstream International Airlines in Fort Lauderdale ever since operator error was blamed for the February 12 crash of a flight bound for Buffalo, N.Y. The regional operator has come under fire for allegedly falsifying flight logs and letting pilots fly without sufficient rest. The report finds even more violations of federal flight safety regulations. Have a look.

Also, today's Wall Street Journal is reporting that Gulfstream executives have fessed up to incidents in which passengers were allowed to hang out in the cockpit.
