FAA Has Issued Part 139 Operating Certificate
The new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport is set
to begin operations on Sunday, May 23rd, after the FAA issued the
airport's Part 139 operating certificate.
The FAA recently completed testing of the airport's 10,000-foot
runway, ILS, nav system, lighting and control tower. Air traffic
controllers are currently undergoing training. Still to be received
is final approval from TSA, and a certificate of occupancy from the
county for the 125,000 square foot terminal building. Six car
rental companies have already agreed to lease space at the new
Airport Authority Chairman Joe Tannehill called the Part 139
Certificate a "significant milestone" for the airport. “We
want to thank our partners at the FAA in helping us to ensure that
the new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport meets all
federal aviation safety requirements," he said.
The opening will mark the completion of the first commercial
service international airport built from scratch in the U.S. in the
past 15 years.
