JH Airport gets perfect safety score

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Today, officials from Jackson Hole Airport announced that the airport earned a perfect score on its recent safety inspection. The Federal Aviation Administration has completed its annual Part 139 Inspection at the Jackson Hole Airport and certified the airport without finding any discrepancies. FAA Regulation Part 139 governs the certification and regulation of all U.S. commercial airports. “It is uncommon for an airport to pass their Part 139 inspection with zero discrepancies and the results of this year’s inspection are indicative of the hard work and preparation made by the entire Jackson Hole Airport Operations team,” said Jim Elwood, Airport Director. According to a release issued by the airport, the inspection is a three day long detailed safety audit spanning topics such as airfield and pavement conditions, airfield lighting, snow and ice control, and aircraft rescue and firefighting. In addition, the inspection critiques the airport operations department’s professional training and response times, accuracy and completeness of records and emergency response planning. FAA inspectors also review the Airport’s Certification Manual (a comprehensive document that outlines an emergency plan for a variety of operational scenarios), as well as the Wildlife Hazard Management Plan. *Feature Photo: h/t Shutterstock / Pitchengine Communities* #buckrail #news
