The American Association of Airport Executives is pleased to present the AAAE Advanced Airport Safety and Operations Specialist (ASOS) School, September 21-22, 2017, in Portland, Oregon. All sessions will take place at the Crowne Plaza Portland Downtown Convention Center.
The Advanced ASOS School is a 14 CFR Part 139 based curriculum designed to educate and challenge all airport operators, military airfield operators, and anyone interested in pursuing a career in Airport Operations. This course will address the most recent information available on 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 current 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 either attended an earlier ASOS school, experienced one or more annual FAA Certification Inspections or have at least two years of experience in airport operations. The advanced course has a unique blend of lectures and practical group exercise case studies designed to increase retention and reinforce practices acceptable to FAA. The school balances prepared presentations, problem-solving exercises and interactive breakout groups so that all attendees can actively participate in the proceedings. Participants are encouraged to discuss best management practices and lessons learned at their airports or from other experiences.
