Airport Operations Management

Airport Operations Management
You’re required to have a comprehensive self-inspection program that includes a laundry list of operational items—pavement and safety areas, markings, signs, lighting, navigational aids, obstructions, wildlife hazard management, perimeter gates, land parcels, roadways, buildings, etc. With hundreds of individual elements to inspect and maintain, you can’t overlook a thing.

App-139 can accommodate any type of self-inspection program you implement. It doesn’t matter the frequency or who conducts the inspections. When inspection personnel are out on the field, you can be assured that App-139 will work intuitively and fit your program.

For airport managers or operations supervisors, App-139 lets you know when inspections were conducted with real-time results. Inspection logs, inspection reports, work orders and NOTAM logs are readily available and can be drilled down for details. There’s no waiting for forms to be filled out, copied and distributed. Data is available everywhere and at any time.

Proactive safety improvements

Ultimately, self-inspections are just one component in your arsenal to continuously improve airfield safety. Being proactive is another.

With App-139, it’s easy to query and analyze airfield asset histories and other operational reports. Find answers to questions like: Where are your biggest pavement problems and when and why are they occurring? How many times did a particular piece of fencing need mending over what time period? Why does a certain bank of lights frequently fail?

Using App-139’s standard reports and query capability, you can proactively focus on your biggest maintenance issues, find opportunities for continuous safety improvement, and have detailed facts to back-up your safety recommendations.

Annual Part 139 inspection

Passing the annual inspection without discrepancies is a matter of professional pride, a boost to your career, and proof that your airfield operations are functioning at the highest levels of safety and efficiency.

The FAA calls it an “administrative inspection of airport files and paperwork.” Many ops managers have a less polite term for it—especially if daily inspection activities are paper-based. Under this system, it can take weeks gathering and organizing paperwork. Let’s not even mention if records are misfiled or lost.

With App-139, the annual Part 139 inspection is a breeze. Now you can run reports and produce documentation to meet your regional FAA inspector requirements. Showcase your comprehensive process for documenting, managing and mitigating every discrepancy, event or incident.

There’s no smarter or more efficient application to manage your airfield operations. And, there’s no better or less stressful way to complete your Part 139 inspection with flying colors.
