FAA grounds Destin helicopter business
DESTIN -- The FAA has grounded a helicopter tour company in Destin because of multiple safety violations.
The agency notified Timberview Helicopters that it could no longer do commercial tours.
They can still perform other operations, such as towing banners.
In the last two years, Timberview Helicopters has operated at Destin Airport, at the Destin Commons Shopping Mall, and from a barge in Destin Harbor.
The FAA says the company can re-apply to do sightseeing tours, once the violations have been corrected.
