Ensuring safe, secure, efficient and sustainable operations at airports of all levels is the most important element. To do so, many national and international regulations and standards must be met, predominantly based on ICAO’s International Standards And Recommended Practices (SARP).
As a consequence, SARPs in Annex 14 recommend Obstacle Limitation Surfaces (OLS) around airports to secure safety of the operation. Due to the development of high-rise buildings, wind turbines and other large objects in the vicinity of an airport, penetration of these surfaces is likely. Through a safety assessment we asses the influence of the object on the safety of the operation.
Aviation safety is a dynamic process. New safety hazards and risks continuously emerge. We systematically analyse, asses and mitigate. Hence an acceptable level of safety will be reached. If needed, innovative mitigation measures are implemented.
Aviation and regulation are inseparable. Our knowledge and expertise on aviation legislation assists federal governments, local governments and airports. The legislation is progressing over time, which is why we conduct continuous research to keep our knowledge up-to-date.
