Expert Led Airport Safeguarding
Airports are large and complex operations. Their influence extends far outside their physical location. Airport safeguarding is the process used to ensure the safety of aircraft landing, taking off, or flying in the vicinity of an airport. There are many factors to consider but the main ones are property developments and wind turbines. At Straten CSL we have decades of experience in this field and provide expert analysis. Though based in the UK, we operate internationally and have experience across 3 continents.

We work with airports, property developers and renewable energy companies. We can run and interpret both feasibility and aeronautical studies for developments. Airports have a safeguarding zone of up to 50km, so these studies must be run. This way everyone can understand the impact of a property development, tall structures, or renewable energy installation may have on an airport. This is not limited to just the physical obstacles but also the impact on navigation aids such as radar.
Glint & Glare Assessments
Solar panels are a great way of generating electricity. However, they can have an impact on aviation. The glint and glare created by reflective surfaces have the potential to interfere with Air Traffic Control and aircraft approaching to land. Detailed assessments must be carried out for any solar panel installation near an airport, particularly under the approach or take off paths. We can carry these out in a timely and efficient way.
Airspace Impact Studies
Airspace impact studies can be a broad field encompassing many different areas. At its heart is a study of the operational effectiveness of the air routes connecting airports to the en-route environment. Performance Based Navigation (PBN) is at the heart of airspace efficiency and predictability, understanding the interoperability of airports and airspace is key. Impact to local communities must also be taken into considerations, specifically noise pollution. Our expert team can assist in reviewing requirements and facilitate changes.
