Airport: Wichita Mid-Continent Airport receives perfect FAA inspection for the ninth consecutive time

Wichita Mid-Continent Airport has received what the airport calls a “perfect” inspection from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The airport received its ninth consecutive discrepancy-free Certification and Safety Inspection, which covers airport emergency response capability, airfield safety maintenance and self-inspection program, compliance with FAA regulatory and operational directives and personnel training programs, it said.

It’s one of the highest consecutive zero discrepancy records in the FAA Central Region, the airport said.

“My sincere compliments and congratulations go out to our operations, maintenance and public safety staff members who have again made it possible to complete this important inspection with no discrepancies,” Brad Christopher, assistant director of airports, said in a statement.

The airport has received perfect inspections in 1998, 1999, 2000, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.
