We maintain the largest airport in the state of Alaska which is the 4th busiest cargo airport in the world. The ANC Airfield Maintenance Station is made up of 109 staff who work cooperatively to operate and maintain regulatory certification and compliance of this important FAR Part 139 and TSA 1542 airport and roads.
