A perfect rating, that’s what the Idaho Falls Regional Airport received from a Federal Aviation Administration Safety Inspection. It’s the highest rating a commercial airport can receive. Airport Manager Craig Davis says the annual inspection checks for fire equipment all the way down to the condition of the runways.
He says, they successfully passed the inspection and received accolades for having zero discrepancies. "We have a great team of employees that dedicate their service to ensuring the safety of the traveling public,” Davis adds “and I think that this just underscores the airports commitment into safe guarding the well-being of our passengers."
The inspection focuses on number of factors from aircraft rescue and firefighting equipment, training and response times; to the condition of runway and taxiway pavement. The annual inspection is required for an airport to renew its operating certificate.
