I know that you need a certain certification to fix a plane, but are you required to have a certification to fix a runway? Or can anyone with the proper equipment be paid to do it?

To the best of my knowledge, you do not require any certification to fix a runway/taxiway, and anyone with a proper equipment can do that. But to facilitate the process, the FAA has published a few checklists which have to be filled while doing this repair job. These checklists can be found Here. FAA also provides assistance in guiding the construction jobs and identifying risks, the link to which is in the same website as mentioned above.

  • $\begingroup$ Indeed no formal certification, but with the amount of problems I have the feeling you could run into with that checklist I would imagine the companies willing to take on this type of job would probably have experience with it. It seems pretty well defined. $\endgroup$ Jun 10, 2015 at 9:25
