Aviation Projects has provided assistance to the Wagner Group from the initial planning approval through to the construction and operation of Brisbane West Wellcamp Airport and continues to provide valuable ongoing advice and support.
Aviation Projects provided expert advice and guidance on a range of matters including the preparation of initial demand forecasts and scope of aircraft operations, concept layouts, concept airspace and aircraft flight paths and consideration of various other planning and operations matters. They have also provided advice on aeronautical infrastructure requirements and costs and operational advice on a variety of matters. Aviation Projects was able to assist with the introduction and ongoing operation of B747-800F aircraft by preparing a safety case that was approved by CASA.
Managing Director, Keith Tonkin, is thoroughly professional in all of his work and takes pride in providing a tailored solution that considers all aspects of a client’s strategic intent, including the short and long term implications of various recommended actions.
Aviation Projects has been integral to the success of our airport and continues to be a valued advisor to our business.
Aviation Projects looks at aviation from the ground up, incorporating a three-dimensional perspective in our work.
We acknowledge that aviation is not only affected by the actual structures but also by wake plumes, downstream turbulence, obstacle marking and obstacle lighting. There are significant legal requirements that need to be considered when preparing assessments of potential aviation impacts when seeking planning approvals and we know how to address these impacts in a comprehensive solution-focused manner.
Our work includes:
- Pre-feasibility/fatal flaw analysis
- Aviation safety/hazard/impact assessments or studies
- Aeronautical studies
- Building height assessments
- Development application assessment
- Obstacle lighting requirements
- Due diligence
- Compliance reporting of aeronautical data pre-and post-construction
- Solar glare analysis
Wind and Solar Farms
Under the National Airports Safeguarding Framework and various state and local government planning requirements, wind farm developers are required to prepare an assessment of potential aviation impacts when seeking planning approvals.
We understand how wind farms, wind turbines and wind monitoring towers pose potential aviation safety risks, and can help to resolve potentially complex airspace impacts through our extensive knowledge and practical experience.
With more solar farms being developed in an increasingly diverse range of locations, the impact of new developments on aircraft operations needs to be addressed. For aviators, this is particularly important if the proposed solar farm project site is located near an aerodrome.
Aviation Projects has extensive experience in the assessment of solar glare and other risks posed by solar farm developments.
The map below indicates the locations of wind and/or solar farm projects for which Aviation Projects has provided expert assistance.
Buildings, communications towers, solar farms, power lines, cranes and other permanent and temporary structures can potentially affect the safe operation of aircraft at or in the vicinity of an airport.
We understand how the built environment can pose potential aviation safety risks, and can provide assurance that these potential safety risks have been identified and appropriately mitigated.
