ERM has been working with Aviation Projects for over three years on various wind farm development projects, with positive tangible results for our business and, more importantly, for our clients. The industry leading expertise, level of professionalism and meticulous attention to detail delivered by Aviation Projects are a reflection of the high standards that they set for themselves. The client’s desired outcomes are always of the highest consideration and adherence to standards and regulations are paramount.
I highly recommend Aviation Projects to any business that needs to identify and address potential aviation safety impacts in order to secure a development approval.

- Consideration of Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) system location and implications to minimum eye height over threshold
- Analysis of the impact on aircraft operational performance for each option, using publicly available aircraft performance data and by consulting with the major aircraft operator
- Preparation of construction cost estimates for each option.
