USCG Contractor Debarred for Improperly Inspecting Helicopter Parts

High Quality Machine Shop and its owners Theresa Gabriel and Carlos Chavez of San Antonio, TX, were debarred from Federal contract work for supplying critical helicopter parts to the Coast Guard that were not properly inspected. The company was fined $5,000 and ordered to pay $1,476 in restitution by a U.S. District Court judge in Raleigh, NC, after pleading guilty with the owners to violating the Aircraft Safety Act.
