Cost-Effective Training for Airfield Electricians at Small Airports

  Project Data
Funds: $300,000
Staff Responsibility: Matthew J. Griffin
Fiscal Year: 2022

This project has been tentatively selected and a project statement (request for proposals) is expected to be available on this website. The problem statement below will be the starting point for a panel of experts to develop the project statement.

Budget resources at small airports are typically limited and are often not 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.
