Gateway Airport Receives Perfect FAA Inspection

Mesa, Ariz. – Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport completed its annual Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification inspection with zero discrepancies.

“A perfect score on an FAA inspection is a difficult task to achieve and requires cooperation amongst staff, the FAA, Mesa Fire, and Mesa Police,” said Gateway Executive Director Jane Morris. “While the Airport continues to grow, safety remains paramount and this score validates our commitment.”

Airports that are certified to accommodate passenger service must undergo a comprehensive inspection each year to ensure compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations. FAA officials inspect fueling procedures, employee training records, inspection records, and emergency response procedures. Officials also conduct an evaluation of the airfield to ensure that it is safe for air traffic.
