October 2018 airportbusiness 47 Jason Fuehne, PE Growing up near St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL), Jason Fuehne got a love for aviation watching planes fly by. TWA flights would come into STL along with myriad other planes, which sparked his interest about the whole industry. “We really didn’t fly much so the whole thing was a mystery to me,” he said. “I thought it was really interesting.” Fuehne, PE, is an associate and section manager for the aviation group at Burns & McDonnell, serving as a civil engineer for the firm since 2004. His work experience includes more than 250 aviation projects, specializing in airfield pavement, including: airfield design pavement and drainage for runways and taxiways; airfield planning projects pavement maintenance and management; and site design, pavement design, storm drainage design and utility layouts. In the last five years, Fuehe has led five airfield pavement programs each with a construction value of $10 million or more. “The people make the industry,” he said. “I think everyone I’ve met has a great story about how they got to where they are today. He led a collaborative effort to develop a specification for airfield concrete for one of Burns & McDonnell’s clients. He brought together leaders in the pavement industry where they developed a specification that reduced the airport risks and increased reliability. He was instrumental in leading Burns & McDonnell into a new business line with pavement management systems in statewide and airport-wide programs. “I’m very proud of our team’s work at Kansas City International on the airside infrastructure,” he said. “Runway 1R-19L at MCI was really the project that brought together a lot of our skills and hopefully helped to further the conversation about quality materials in airfield construction.” Continued online at Somehow we have to make flying a plane more acces- sible and more affordable. Some may argue that we are there, but if that's the case, our industry has a marketing problem. If we don't have pilots, we don't have careers in aviation.
