The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) conducted its annual Certification and Safety Inspection of Wichita Mid-Continent Airport this week. Airport officials are pleased to report that zero (0) discrepancies were found in the inspection. The inspection covers airport emergency response capability, airfield safety maintenance and self-inspection program, compliance with FAA regulatory and operational directives, and personnel training programs. The certification inspection was conducted this year by the FAA Central Region’s Lead Certification Inspector.
