    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's Rules, to Georges Aviation Services Inc., licensee
       of aircraft radio station N27674 and an Emergency Locator Transmitter
       (ELT), in Honolulu, Hawaii. Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the Rules,
       issuance of this Notice does not preclude the Enforcement Bureau from
       further action if warranted, including issuing a Notice of Apparent
       Liability for Forfeiture for the violation(s) noted herein.

    2. On October 23, 2012, in response to a complaint from the United States
       Coast Guard Joint Rescue Coordination Center (JRCC), an agent of the
       Enforcement Bureau's Honolulu Office located an activated ELT
       operating on 121.5 and 243.0 MHz located at the George's Aviation Inc.
       hanger, on the south ramp of Honolulu International Airport,, in
       Honolulu, Hawaii and observed the following violation:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 87.193: "Transmissions by emergency locator transmitters
        (ELTs) are intended to be actuated manually or automatically and

        station as a locating aid for survival purposes." At the time of the
        investigation, the agent located an ELT in an activated mode on board
        the aircraft registered to George's Aviation Services Inc. There was
        no actual emergency situation.
