Donaldson Field passes annual operations inspection


Donaldson Field, a general aviation airport at the South Carolina Technology and Aviation Center (SCTAC) in Greenville, has passed its yearly operations inspection.

The Federal Aviation Administration conducts an annual inspection of Donaldson Field to confirm it is complying with its operating certificate and certification manual.

The inspection includes condition of runway and taxiway pavement, markings, and lighting; accuracy and completeness of records and training of personnel, and aircraft fueling operations. Inspectors also review the airport’s emergency plan.

“Passing FAA inspection speaks to the hard work and dedication of our staff,” said Danny Moyd, COO at SCTAC.

Donaldson Field is a major aircraft maintenance and modification center providing everything from major repairs to routine inspections. Other uses include air charters, hangar and tie-down rental, flight lessons, and pilot and aircraft supplies.

The site is also home to an Army Aviation Support Facility of the South Carolina Army National Guard which opened in 2014.
