Helping Airfields Develop Safely
ASD offers a variety of safeguarding services to help airport operators. These include  checking planning applications and potential obstacles such as wind turbines, and advice  on airfield developments. We also prepare safeguarding charts for large and small airfields.   Safeguarding is an important part of ensuring the safety of flying operations, including  future developments. With increasing pressure to develop land around airfields, it is vital to  establish a system for determining what is safe and what is not.  The checking procedure  will be examined by your CAA auditors and creates an irregular workload.  The process of  checking a planned obstacle or development against all the obstacle limitation surfaces and other planes is labour-  intensive, and requires accuracy. Specialist software is available, but it is expensive and requires training to use.   The cost-effective alternative to doing it yourself is to let ASD help you, using our wide aviation  experience and specialist software. This software was conceived, then developed over a number of  years, for the sole purpose of aifield safeguarding. It was originally in a military version for MOD, and  later in a civil version which is CAP 168 and ICAO Annex 14 compliant.   With our wide aviation experience, we look at safeguarding from an aviation perspective.  Contact ASD to discuss your requirements.
