Every Air Force plane around the world requires an airfield in order to take off and land. These aircraft must be able to launch at a moment’s notice, so it’s imperative the airfield be safe and well maintained at all times. That responsibility is the duty of Airfield Management specialists. It may sound like an easy job, but it’s not. Airfield Management specialists ensure runways are clear of foreign objects and lighting systems function properly, in addition to responding to ground emergencies and communicating hazards to pilots.
