AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Good news flying into our area! Augusta Regional Airport has received 100 percent on its report card.

Every year the FAA inspects all commercial service airports in order to ensure compliance with federal regulations and safety mandates.

All operational departments are reviewed to ensure compliance with training procedures and employee certification qualifications.
