CLT received zero discrepancies on its 2012 FAA Part 139 Inspection, held Tuesday, August 21 – Thursday, August 23 at the Airport. The rating is the highest an airport can earn.
The annual three-day FAA Part 139 Inspection examines the overall condition of airfields to ensure that airports nationwide are meeting safety requirements set by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Inspectors examined many areas that included: pavement conditions, airfield signage, lights, safety areas, approach zones, firefighter drill response, wildlife hazardous management plan, self inspection records, airport certification manual, fueling operations and various training records.
“We worked hard to achieve this,” said CLT Operations Manager Jimmy Mynatt. “It’s year around ongoing maintenance, and we were able to achieve elite distinction this year. It confirms Charlotte is one of the safest airports in the country.”
