FAA, GCR Recognize First Airport Data Update

GCR 2.jpg Last Thursday, the FAA and GCR, Inc., recognized Minden, Louisiana Airport manager Steven Burdeaux and the City of Minden, for successfully using www.5010Web.com to transmit infrastructure data to the FAA. The Minden Airport (MNE) became the first airport in the U.S. to electronically update its airport data, accomplishing a goal of the FAA’s Office of Airports Business Plan. Due to this success, GCR is working closely with the Office of Airports on evaluating the potential of expanding the capabilities of www.5010Web.com to accept and transmit data changes directly from all U.S. airports in the near future.

Airport manager Steven Burdeaux was presented a plaque commemorating his and Minden Airport’s achievement during the 29th semi-annual Airport Master Record Seminar, held in New Orleans on Nov. 2-6. GCR Inc., and the FAA’s Engineering Division, AAS-100, Airport Safety Data Program hold the training class twice a year. Attendees study in detail the elements that appear on the FAA’s Form 5010 that is used to gather information about public-use airports and aeronautical data on their landing areas.
