DBQ airport recognized for 20 years of safety

Posted:

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- The Dubuque Regional Airport received official notice Monday of its 20th consecutive year of perfect compliance with Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 139. FAR Part 139 governs safety standards for airfield operations, safety, and maintenance at airports served by commercial airlines. That means the Dubuque airport meets or exceeds all federally mandated standards, rules, and policies which promote safety at all commercial airports. An FAA inspector evaluates the overall compliance in twenty-three separate categories.

Dubuque Regional Airport Commission Chair Mike Santillo states he is extremely proud of tireless efforts of the airport staff. "This is not easy. The FAA does not just hand out these certificates, the airport needs to earn them. Twenty years of a perfect compliance is unheard of. The record speaks volumes for the Airport Staff."
