Solar panels are becoming an increasingly popular way of generating electricity due to the positive impact they can have on climate change. 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.


  • A glint and glare assessment is required to assess the visual hazard posed by reflective solar panels
  • We can provide you with a comprehensive, easy to follow report detailing best practice
  • Our specialists can identify receptors, along with the times and duration that they would potentially pose a risk You’ll receive full mitigation recommendations on how to remove or reduce the impact of glint and glare
