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.
King Island is located in the Bass Strait, between Tasmania’s North-West Coast and Cape Otway in Victoria.
Established in 1907, King Island Council presides over the municipality, which includes the three main townships of Currie, Grassy and Naracoopa. The council owns and operates a number of facilities and delivers a wide range of services to its population of approximately 1,600 people.
Air travel is the only means of access for people travelling to or from the island. It is also the only means of transport for high-value and/or time-critical freight, both inbound and outbound. King Island Airport is therefore a critical element of King Island’s transport infrastructure.
The recent rise in passenger numbers and freight movements revealed constraints to some elements of King Island Airport’s physical infrastructure.
King Island Council commissioned the updated Airport Master Plan to ensure the long term viability of the airport in support of its strategic objectives.
The purpose of the Master Plan is to establish a framework for the future planning and development of King island Airport to ensure KIC achieves its strategic objectives and capitalises on the aeronautical and commercial opportunities provided by the airport.
