Kansas City International Airport Receives FAA Safety Medal of Excellence

Kansas City International Airport Receives FAA Safety Medal of Excellence

On June 6, 2014, when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) performed its annual certification inspection of the operations area over three days at Kansas City International Airport (airport code MCI) all facilities passed with no discrepancies, yielding a perfect inspection for 2014.

The FAA Airport Certification Program bestowed upon the Kansas City Aviation Department the Medal Excellence.

“A perfect score is not given to every airport and is something to be proud of,” said Aviation Director Mark VanLoh, A.A.E. “The safety of the flying public, airlines and other airport users is a high priority and a consideration in nearly every facet of KCI Airport operations. I am very proud of our employees and partners who made this happen!”

The FAA’s Part 139 inspection includes the conditions of everything on KCI’s airfield including the pavement condition, lighting, pavement markings, condition of the grounds next to runways and taxiways (safety areas), training for Airport Operations and Field Maintenance, Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) training and operations, wildlife management, record keeping, fueling operations and Air Operations Area driver training. The evaluation found KCI to be fully compliant with Federal Aviation Regulation Part 139, the Airport Certification Manual and the Airport Operating Certificate.
