FWA passes annual inspection discrepancy-free

August 15, 2017 GMT

Fort Wayne International Airport passed its annual Federal Aviation Administration inspection without any discrepancies for the third year in a row.

The most recent inspection took place Aug. 8 to Thursday, a statement from the airport said.

The three-day inspection entails an on-site inspector examining all areas of airport operations from recordkeeping to aircraft rescue and response.

Typically, most inspections will find a discrepancy in signage and lighting, the statement said, indicating an airport may have specific areas within the operation that need to be re-evaluated.

“This is a huge accomplishment, and the Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority staff works very hard to make sure that we provide the safest and most efficient airfield and services that we can,” said Scott Hinderman, executive director of airports, in the statement.

“The fact that we had zero discrepancies for a third consecutive year proves that the Airport Authority makes operations and safety our number one priority,” Hinderman said.
