MALMS Products Improving Runway Lighting Maintenance at Southwest Florida International Airport
Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) in Fort Myers, Florida, is a single- runway, medium-hub airport currently ranked as the 43rd busiest airport for passenger traffic in the United States, with nearly 8.4 million passengers in 2015.
RSW is a highly seasonal airport with peak flight operations occurring between January and April. Due to the seasonal nature of the airport, compounded by a single-runway, there are challenges for the airfield maintenance team to maintain the highest standards for airport lighting systems, especially working around flights during peak months. In response to these issues, the maintenance department has proactively developed an aggressive preventative maintenance program in order to stay ahead of potential failures, which could have a negative impact on airport operations. To support this ongoing preventative maintenance program, RSW acquired the MALMS Photometric Bench manufactured by Tailor Made Systems Ltd. This tester is a workshop-based system that tests light fixtures before their installation on the runway.
