Mokulele Airlines, a Hawaiian carrier, grounded its fleet for three hours while the flight crew underwent training. Eight round-trip flights were cancelled during the grounding.
The grounding was a result of an FAA inspection. The FAA determined that cabin crews were not given training on the use of fire extinguishers and life preservers, as required under the airline’s FAA operating regulations. The FAA asked the airline to cease operation until training was completed. (KGMB9)
