Willard Airport staff takes pride in working 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, creating an ideal environment for pilots, travelers, and airport employees. That work was validated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in April.
Each year, the FAA inspects every commercial service airport in the country. Willard Airport passed without a single discrepancy, for the second year in a row. After a comprehensive review of records, training programs, inspection programs, and an on-site visit, the FAA didn’t find a single item out of compliance – something that is exceptionally rare in one visit, much less for two straight years.
“This achievement illustrates the dedication that our team has to running Willard Airport safely,” said Tim Bannon, Executive Director.
“It was a great achievement to score a perfect inspection in 2022, and it feels even more rewarding to pass with no discrepancies for a second year in a row in 2023. I would like to recognize our operations and maintenance teams for their ongoing commitment to the safety of Willard Airport.”
