Aviation Projects is providing support to Archerfield Airport Corporation in securing approval for, and delivering, Project AIM (Airside Infrastructure Modernisation).

The project comprises alterations to the main runway and upgrading of associated taxiways and other aviation infrastructure.

As set out in the Preliminary Draft Major Development Plan which has just been on public exhibition, a special lighting configuration has been designed at each runway end to enable starter extensions and therefore maximise the amount of runway available for take-off.

The current Manual of Standards Part 139 does not allow for starter extensions, so Aviation Projects prepared a safety case in support of an application to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority to proceed with the non-standard arrangement.
