AIRFIELD MANAGEMENT

RUNNING THE RUNWAYS

1C7X1

The safety of our Airmen depends as much on the upkeep of the airfields it does our planes. Responsible for the maintenance of runways, lighting and other airfield components and systems, Airfield Management specialists ensure that all takeoffs and landings can proceed without incident. From keeping runways clear of foreign objects to communicating hazards to pilots, these professionals make sure our aircraft maintain their ability to take off at a moment’s notice.
