MILWAUKEE -- The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has presented Milwaukee County’s General Mitchell International Airport (MKE) with a perfect score on its annual certification inspection.

It is the ninth consecutive year MKE has received an inspection with zero discrepancies noted by inspectors.

The FAA inspection, which is required annually by Part 139 of the Federal Aviation Regulations, includes a close look at pavement, marking, lighting and safety areas along all runways and taxiways. It also reviews the Airport’s self-inspections, training of personnel, and aircraft fueling operations. The Airport Certification Manual, which includes the Airport’s operational, security and emergency plans, is also reviewed by inspectors.
