Advanced Airport Safety and Operations School

Advanced Schools are tailored for individuals who have either attended an earlier Airport Safety and Operations School, experienced one or more annual FAA Certification Inspections or have at least two years of experience in airport operations. The school has fewer prepared presentations, and more group Part 139 problem-solving exercises so that all attendees can actively participate in the proceedings. Participants are encouraged to discuss best management practices and lessons learned at their airports or from other experiences.

The Advanced Airport Safety and Operations School is designed for individuals who either have attended the Basic Airport Safety and Operations School or have at least three years of experience in airport operations.
