ICAO: YKNG / IATA: KNI

“Aerodrome reporting officer” is the term used to describe the person responsible for regularly inspecting the aerodrome and advising users of its condition.  All aerodromes are required to have at least one trained reporting officer, one of only a few positions required by legislation to operate an aerodrome.

The officer must be competent in inspecting the physical characteristics and condition of the   airfield runway strip and runway, lighting systems, obstacle limitation surfaces , initiating a NOTAM, using an air-band radio, and supervising aerodrome works.

It is a big responsibility.  Lives at stake.

I came here to fade obscurely into old age.   Am I too old for this kind of thing?  It is bad enough knowing that the restaurant or food outlet one has just inspected could kill someone any time with just a minor lapse.  Amoebic meningitis is a real risk here in the pool in summer.   Now I am to be responsible for the flying doctor and assorted plane loads of miners landing safely.
