ADVANCED ASOS SCHOOL
Since 1989, more than 8,500 airport operations personnel have attended one or more of these schools. ASOS schools have become a regular and recurring part of virtually every airport's training program for operations staff. Endorsed and taught by FAA officials and other airport industry professionals, these nationally recognized courses are designed to increase awareness of FAA's Part 139 airport certification program, as well as to enhance the professionalism and safety responsibilities of airport operations personnel. These professional schools are specifically tailored to airport personnel responsible for the day-to-day operations of public-use (both commercial service and general aviation) and military shared-use airports throughout the United States.
This course will address the most recent information available on FAR Part 139 requirements, including revised or pending changes for FAA Advisory Circulars impacting airport operations. This session also gives attendees a great opportunity to apply the new requirements in a practical environment, as well as test their own working knowledge of self-inspection techniques and Airport Certification Manual compliance.
This advanced school is tailored for individuals who have attended an earlier ASOS school, experienced one or more annual FAA Certification Inspections or have at least two to three years of experience in airport operations. This Regional Advanced ASOS School uses fewer prepared presentations and more group case studies designed to challenge airport operations personnel, maintenance personnel, and others with airfield management responsibilities and to work together as a team to solve airport operational issues that take place at airports.
The Advanced ASOS School is scheduled to take place September 10-11, 2019. Below
