ACRP Project 09-22 Cost-Effective Training for Airfield Electricians at Small Airports

Summary :

Research Field: Maintenance

Allocation: $300,000

Budget resources at small airports are typically limited, and are often not be able to support full-time electricians, leaving the maintenance of airfield lighting to other airport staff. A small airfield lighting issue may then result in significant operational impacts if a repair cannot be made quickly.

The objective of this research is to develop basic electrical safety and airfield lighting maintenance training guidance, tools, and modules for use by staff at small airports. The guidance should help airport staff recognize hazards of airfield lighting, safely undertake simple maintenance tasks, and know when to call a qualified electrician to perform repairs.
