Training for rural Alaskan airport operators

Rural airport contractors responsible for maintaining state airports in Alaska (USA) recently received training on airport operations, safety, equipment operation and maintenance, lighting system maintenance, and education on how vital the contractors are to their community and the statewide aviation system. Airport contractors from Koyukuk, Nulato, Golovin, Emmonak, Savoonga, White Mountain, Hooper Bay, Mekoryuk, Kipnuk, Akiachak, Port Heiden, Sand Point, and King Cove participated in weeklong classes held at the Fairbanks Pipeline Training Center.

Alaska's department of transportation and public facilities teamed up with the Fairbanks Pipeline Training Centre, the Construction Education Foundation of the Associated General Contractors of Alaska, and the Alaska Operating Engineers Employers Training Trust to provide the training, with major funding coming from a Denali Commission grant.
