Safety inspectors have given Mohawk Airlines the green light to keep flying, but the company's finances remain under the scrutiny of federal regulators.
"They passed the inspection. They're a safe carrier," Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Duncan Pardue said.
Inspectors did find some "minor problem," but Pardue would not disclose any details.
Mohawk President Robert Peach said Wednesday that the airline had completed "this white-glove inspection with literally no dust on the gloves."
Peach said the inspection results should put to rest any questions surrounding the airline's safety. Mohawk, which serves Greater Buffalo International Airport, grounded most of its fleet last April after a surprise inspection by the FAA.
