Airways Corporation of New Zealand Limited Annual Report 2018 2019
AV I AT I ON SERV I CES The Aviation Services business unit of Airways International provides equipment installation and maintenance services, upper airspace services and aviation consultancy to airport and ANSP customers in New Zealand and worldwide. In August 2018 Aviation Services commenced an airfield lighting project at RNZAF Base Ohakea. New LED taxiway and runway edge lights and Movement Area Guidance signs are being installed, and around 100km of cabling is being laid as part of this New Zealand Defence Force major upgrade which is due for completion in November. PROCEDURE AND A I RSPACE DES I GN , AND FL I GHT I NSPECT I ON Our Aeropath business completed a significant procedure design project in the Philippines during the year, developing the concept for a proposed new international airport development. It is hoped that this project, run through a consortium, will lead to further consultancy opportunities in the Philippines for Aeropath. Our procedure design, charting and flight inspection work in the South Pacific continues to cement Airways’ commitment to enhancing aviation safety and developing sustainable and efficient services that will make a difference in the region.
Airways has been working with the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) since 2013 on a multi-year Pacific Aeronautical Charting and Procedures (PACP) programme. The $2.4 million project to update flight procedures and aviation charts for 38 aerodromes across the Pacific, was largely completed during the year. Aeropath and Airways worked closely with MFAT to ensure new flight procedures were implemented in time to support the Pacific Islands Forum held in Tuvalu in September. The PACP programme comprised of more accurate surveying of runways and designing satellite-based approach procedures to improve the ability of aircraft to land safely, especially in poor weather. Aeropath and Airways also participated in a testbed project during the year, exploring the development of a regional satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) to improve the
