Aircraft Station Repair Fraud

Francisca Diaz, former employee of Aircraft Transparencies Repair (ATR) and Transparencies Engineering Group (TEG), has pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to mail fraud in conjunction with a scheme involving the false representation that aircraft windows had been overhauled properly when they had not. It is the continuation of a March 22 multi-count indictment filed against 16 employees of ATR and TEG for conspiracy to sell and falsely certify to commercial aviation customers the airworthiness of aircraft cockpit windows. Diaz was a bookkeeper for ATR at the time. Knowing that the operation had lost its FAA certification, she created a separate accounting system that allowed employees to be paid in cash instead of by check. The shadow system created the illusion that ATR was no longer operating as a repair station.
