Montgomery Regional Airport Receives Perfect Score on Annual 139 Airfield Inspection
Safety Remains A Top Priority for Dannelly Field

(Montgomery, AL) – The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) completed a safety inspection of
Dannelly Field in January 2021. Montgomery Regional Airport (MGM) received a perfect score,
and no deficiencies were found. The airport had not received such a score since 2002.

The inspection, which evaluates adherence to certification requirements for airports, is commonly
known as the “139 Airfield Inspection.” A formal review to ensure the overall safety of operations,
the annual inspection is a critical component of the airport’s safety program.

In addition to close inspection of the airport’s ramps (aircraft parking areas), taxiways, signage
and runways, federal officials also review lighting, buildings, hangars and fueling facilities, noting
any regulatory violations or deficiencies. MGM received a clean inspection report, without citation
of any safety issues.

“Airport safety is paramount for our passengers. A perfect score on an FAA safety inspection is the
crown jewel of airport management,” said Executive Airport Director Marshall J. Taggart Jr. “We
are proud of our committed commercial development staff at Montgomery Regional Airport. This
is a joint success, and the Facilities, Operations, Maintenance, Safety & Security, as well as the
Commercial Development staff share in this incredible accomplishment.”

MGM ensures making safety and security for our passengers is number one.
