COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – For the fifth consecutive year, the Colorado Springs Airport passed the FAA’s annual Airport Certification Inspection with flying colors and zero deficiencies.

This inspection is required annually for passenger service and covers a strenuous range of operational and safety standards. The COS staff continues to step up to the challenge to enhance the operations, maintenance, and safety of our airfield.

“This accomplishment is directly attributed to the dedication of our maintenance and operations staff,” says Brett Miller, Assistant Director of Aviation - Operations & Maintenance. “Our Airport Operations, Field Shop, Airfield Electricians, and each member of our staff have played key roles in the continued safety and efficiency at the Colorado Springs Airport.”

The FAA inspection covers specific aspects of employee training, the conditions and maintenance of paved and unpaved surfaces, lighting and signage, emergency response, fueling operations and various other operational procedures.
