Krystal Brumfield, the CEO of the Airport Minority Advisory Council

On this episode we’re talking with Krystal Brumfield, the CEO of the Airport Minority Advisory Council - or otherwise known as AMAC.

During our conversation, Krystal & I talk about a few different things - including her journey to become the head of AMAC, which actually doesn’t include any background in Aviation, and how she’s using that different background to bring a new perspective to industry issues. We also talk about how they are working with women & minority owned businesses to get them more involved with projects going on at airports, as well as the benefits those types of companies can bring to table and the challenges that they still face.

Finally, we wrap up our conversation by talking about the role of industry organizations today and how they may be more relevant than ever.

Fairbanks International Airport Baggage Transport Conveyor Enhanced With Mod Drive™ System


Fairbanks International Airport Baggage Transport Conveyor Enhanced With Mod Drive™ System

Airports face a host of unique industry challenges, such as meeting efficiency regulations and seeking out the best maintenance practices to reduce costs and keep operations flowing. In today’s current economic climate, any potential cost savings can go a long way. 

In 2019, Alaska’s Fairbanks International Airport (FAI) sought to modernize its equipment and operations. They were dissatisfied with the performance of the gearmotors on their baggage transport conveyors and began searching for new suppliers. Regal approached FAI with a solution that could improve equipment performance and simplify maintenance, with the added benefit of energy cost savings: the Hub City® MOD Drive™ system.

This white paper discusses the hardware deployed, the test results and the annualized expectations for ROI.
