JIA included in airport safety program
The Jacksonville (FL) Business Journal

Jacksonville International Airport is one of 25 airports across the country that will participate in a program designed to improve the safety of air-side operations.

The Federal Aviation Administration chose JIA as well as Daytona Beach International Airport and Tallahassee Regional Airport. The airports involved in the program have six months to submit a Safety Management System plan and recommendations to the FAA. The FAA will then create a national SMS plan based on the best elements of the plans submitted by participating airports.
"The forecast growth in air transportation will require new measures and a greater effort from all aviation producers -- including airport operators -- to achieve a continuing improvement in the level of aviation safety," the FAA said in announcing the program.

The SMS pilot program is focused on commercial airports, but officials at the Jacksonville Aviation Authority want to expand the program to its three general aviation airports, Craig Airport, Herlong Airport and Cecil Field.
