Florida’s Cecil Airport (VQQ) has been awarded the FAA Southern Region’s 2011 General Aviation Airport Safety Award for its efforts in safety. This award was based on the development and implementation of specific airport safety programs, and other accomplishments, that resulted in improved safety, according to officials.
SportairUSA will present a seminar on the certification, operation and maintenance of Special Light Sport Aircraft at the FAA Inspection Authorization Clinic in Jacksonville, Arkansas, Feb. 10.
Passage by the Senate of the 23rd extension of funding for the FAA keeps programs going until Feb. 17. The House had passed its short extension Jan. 24. Both Houses will now get busy on a full-term authorization.

Because an airport operates much like a small town, there is a wide variety of duties. From entry-level to upper management, there are many different types of job opportunities available in many different fields.
