Lubbock Airport Completes FAA Inspection

The Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport completed its annual Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airport Certification Inspection with zero discrepancies.

The three-day inspection is a rigorous review covering all components of an airport's ability to provide a safe operating facility for airline and passenger customers.

"You and your staff are to be commended for the procedures that you are using in the day-to-day operation of the airport," said John Dougherty, FAA certification and safety inspector. "The appearance of the airport indicates that they are effective."

The inspection focused on employee training, training documentation, Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF), aircraft fueling procedures and fuel truck safety, wildlife control, low visibility procedures, the Airport Emergency Plan, and a thorough airfield evaluation.

"Receiving no discrepancies on the airport's annual certification inspection is a very difficult goal to reach and very few commercial service airports in the United States ever reach that goal," said James Loomis, assistant city manager for transportation and public works. "The results of this year's inspection are a testament to the dedication and professionalism of the Aviation Operations and Maintenance staff as well as the Fire Department personnel stationed at the airport. I am pleased and honored to be associated with such a fine group of professionals."
