Safe Solutions for Complex Problems

Aviation Projects has a holistic approach to aviation consultancy, ensuring safety is incorporated into everything we do. We have a clear focus on ensuring proposed developments, on and off-airport, allow an acceptable level of aviation safety for current and future operations.

We understand that air travel safety in Australia is exemplary however, we also believe there is a constant need for improvement. Some of the greatest threats to aviation safety are in the airspace surrounding commercial and residential developments, telecommunications towers and other structures.

Where aviation safety issues have been identified or safety standards not met, we can investigate and assist aviation regulators, local and state governments, airports and commercial developers detailing safety cases, rigorous risk assessments and treatment plans to ensure an acceptable level of safety.

We can interpret and apply the Airports Act 1996 and associated Regulations including the Airports (Protection of Airspace) Regulations 1997.

Aviation Projects differs from other consultants because of our unique perspective on aviation, and because we look at aviation from the ground up.

We are qualified in resolving safety issues relating to a wide range of matters including:

  • Aerodrome safeguarding
  • Airspace protection
  • Building development impacts
  • Crane operations
  • Power line corridor impact
  • Telecommunications tower impact
  • Drones and remotely piloted aircraft
  • Wind farms and infrastructure
  • Fatigue risk management

Aerodrome Safeguarding

The purpose of aerodrome safeguarding is to ensure the safety of an aircraft, passengers and crews while in the vicinity of an airport, including take-off and landing.

Airport safeguarding addresses community needs by ensuring the impacts of airports on communities are understood and are influenced by good planning decisions. We understand airports are vital infrastructure with significant economic and community benefits, and know they need to be properly protected over the long term to ensure their safe and efficient operation.

Poor land-use planning around airports leads to a range of issues and problems including aircraft safety hazards, operational restrictions, protracted litigation, amenity impacts for nearby residents and airport closures in extreme cases.

Aviation Projects are experts in the safeguarding of existing airports and ensuring that any new developments incorporate industry best practice to convert ideas into cost-effective, operationally efficient, technically compliant and future-proofed aviation infrastructure solutions.
