Guam - Guam received high marks from the Federal Aviation Administration following a recent visit and inspection of the facility. Guam International Airport Authority executive manager Mary Torres says Part 139 inspections focused on airport certification and ARFF response time.

Five minor discrepancies in ARFF response, signage and runway issues were noted and have since been resolved. Immediately after the inspection the FAA's Runway Safety Action Team toured the airport focusing on compliance issues. The visit allowed for the feds to hear the concerns of runway and airfield operations from employees. Torres says the outcome of the inspections was revealed during the recent pacific aviation director's conference in the CNMI.

"Guam is the shining example of airport excellence throughout the region and throughout that conference the focus was on safety and partnerships and cooperation and Guam was repeatedly cited for our safety, for being on top of the ball and being very proactive," she told KUAM News.

The feds also recommended quarterly inspections, updates of advisories, and maintenance of equipment to ensure one hundred percent compliance of Part 139 requirements.
