 This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
 of the Commission's rules (Rules), to Sky Dolphin LLC, registered owner

 Pursuant to Section 1.89(a) of the Rules, issuance of this Notice does

 On December 5, 2016, in response to complaint from the Honolulu
 Control Facility, U.S. Coast Guard Honolulu District 14, an agent of
 the Enforcement Bureau's Honolulu Office inspected aircraft N61384,

 Airport, and observed the following violations:

 47 C.F.R. § 87.193: "Transmissions by emergency locator transmitters
 (ELTs) are intended to be actuated manually or automatically and operated
 automatically as part of an aircraft or a survival craft station as
 a locating aid for survival purposes."  The ELT on board the aircraft
 N61384 was activated in the absence of any actual emergency situation.

 47 C.F.R. § 87.199(f): "To enhance protection of life and property it
 is mandatory that each 406.0  -  406.1 MHz ELT be registered with NOAA

 MHz ELT on board the aircraft N61384 was not registered at the time
 of activation.

 taken to correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and (iii) must

 The response must be complete in itself and must not be abbreviated by
 reference to other communications or answers to other notices.
 In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Rules, we direct Sky Dolphin LLC
 to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or declaration
 under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an authorized officer of
