Local Airport Passes Annual Inspection with Flying Colors

Apr 19, 2013 No Comments by

Each year, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport and other commercial service airports nationwide must undergo an intense certification and compliance inspection by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).  This year, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport passed the FAA’s Part 139 Certification Inspection with flying colors.

According to Airport Director Mark Brewer, “It is rare for an airport to have a comprehensive, three-day certification inspection and discover no items that need to be corrected.  Manchester-Boston Regional Airport was very fortunate to come out of this year’s inspection with zero reportable conditions.  It is an impressive statement and testament to the hard work and dedication of the operations professionals who maintain the airport year-round.”

Included in a FAA Part 139 – Certification and Operations Inspection is a review of:

  • airport rescue/firefighting equipment, training and response times
  • airport emergency plan
  • operations/maintenance personnel training and performance
  • paved/unpaved safety areas and runway approaches
  • markings and lighting
  • snow and ice control procedures
  • airport’s self-inspection program
  • operations and maintenance records and logs

After careful inspection of the airport and a thorough review of each item contained within the airport certification manual, the FAA found Manchester-Boston Regional Airport to be a safe, efficient and well-run operation.
