The Myrtle Beach International Airport passed its annual Federal Aviation Administration Part 139 Certification Operations Inspection with no discrepancies, according to a news release issued by the airport.

Annually, MYR and other commercial service airports nationwide are required to undergo an extensive inspection of safety records, emergency operation manuals, meetings with airport management and on-site checks by a team of federal inspectors to assure the airport is in compliance with its certification manual and operating certificate.

Included in the inspection are operations and maintenance records and logs, airport rescue/firefighting equipment, training and response times, operations/maintenance personnel training and performance, paved/unpaved safety areas and runway approaches and the airport’s self-inspection program.

“This year, MYR passed the inspection with no discrepancies... an impressive statement and testament to the hard work and dedication of the operations professionals who maintain the airport year-round,” said Pat Apone, director of airports, in a press release.
