We understand aviation very well as well as airports and airport users through the lens of 10 years of airport management and 39 years of flight and dispatch experience across the globe.
Approach zones, runways, taxiways, safety areas, aprons, and buildings make up the infrastructure of every airport nationwide. Regardless of airport size, category, or ownership, this infrastructure requires inspection to determine the condition of each infrastructure component. Furthermore, to obtain funding from state and federal agencies, a baseline must be established so that airport owners can develop programs to pursue the funds they need to sustain their airport long-term and meet compliance requirements mandated by the FAA and/or State of Texas. With the baseline completed, follow-on inspections and maintenance can be scheduled to support airport operations for years to come.
Aerial inspection of the airport pavement exceeds the minimum inspection requirement and it provides you with a more detailed perspective or “bigger picture” of your airport pavement condition. Today’s technology applied at your airport means that aerial inspection can be conducted at low cost and on a non-interference basis. This is accomplished using drone mapping technology which provides high resolution photography of every square inch of your pavement and exact locations for pavement distresses. Furthermore, patterns of pavement distress become readily apparent in the photographs, because entire sections of pavement can be mapped and viewed. This photographic record will be very valuable over time as subsequent drive-by monthly inspections are completed. The next annual aerial inspection can be compared side-by-side with the previous year to ascertain any notable degradation in pavement condition.
A baseline for the Runway Safety Area and Taxiway Safety Area can best be established using drone video to document condition. Unlike pavement, driving through safety areas may cause damage to the surface. Walking these areas is not a viable option either.
Aerial drone video gives you the pilot’s perspective as well as a view not perceptible from the ground.
Buildings - Roofs
Every building on your airport has a roof. How often are you able to inspect the roofs of your hangars, terminal building, and other facilities? Drone roof inspections are much safer to conduct. Performing these inspections annually can identify problems before they cause damage to aircraft and/or equipment that occupy those spaces.
