Springfield-Branson National Airport (KSGF) receives discrepancy-free inspection
The Federal Aviation Administration recently conducted its yearly safety inspection at the Springfield-Branson National Airport. For the 13th year in a row, the airport passed with flying colors, receiving a “discrepancy-free” inspection.
The FAA safety inspection is a detailed and demanding review of everything at the airport that affects aircraft safety. It’s part of the annual review that’s required in order for an airport to be certified to host commercial airlines.
During the inspection, FAA inspectors reviewed the airport’s 6 million square feet of taxiways and runways, along with 1,400 airfield lights and 200,000 square feet of painted pavement markings.
Later this year, SGF will receive the Airport Safety Enhancement Award. The FAA gives the award to airports that have discrepancy-free inspections three years in a row.
