Aerodrome Safeguarding

Aerodrome Safeguarding is essentially the protection of a set of flight safety surfaces around the airfield, from any potential physical or technical impacts of a proposed development.

In 2003, BAA assumed responsibility from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) as the statutory safeguarding consultee for developments within its individual aerodrome areas. As of September 2012, the responsibility of Aberdeen International Airport’s (AIA) safeguarding was transferred from a central planning team in Heathrow, to AIA, who now oversees all planning applications and pre-planning requests.

The aerodrome safeguarding process is included in UK Legislation as an integral part of planning procedures as outlined in the Town and Country Planning (Safeguarded Aerodromes, Technical Sites and Military Explosives Storage Areas) (Scotland) Direction 2003. It also forms part of AIA’s license agreement, as administered by the CAA, to ensure and maintain the integrity of safe flight operations in and around the aerodrome.

Areas of development interest within 15 km of AIA:

  • Tall Structures
  • Masts or antennas emitting signals which could interfere with airport navigation aids
  • Landscaping schemes which encourage wildlife habitats, including SUDs
  • Developments using highly reflective materials such as glazed roofs or photo voltaic cells
  • Use of cranage and other tall construction equipment (within 6km)
  • Lighting and illuminated signage
  • Firework displays, balloon releases and blimp launches

The above list of developments is not exhaustive and AIA encourages early pre-application dialogue with developers where their development may impact upon the operations of the Airport. Pre-application guidance is free of charge for all developments, subject to availability of resource.


Drone Information

We have created a dedicated page regarding flying drones near our airport. For more information, see here.

Wind Turbines

The effects of wind turbines on airport radar and navigational systems may lead to a substantial degradation of the ability to provide Air Traffic Services (ATS). It is therefore important for AIA to take a proactive approach together with windfarm developers to ensure the continued safe and efficient operation of the ATS. Any wind farm/turbine application within a 30km radius of the airfield, must be assessed by AIA’s Safeguarding Team to ensure there is no physical or technical effect on safe airport operations.

All Planning Applications received by the Local Planning Authority (LPA) will be forwarded to AIA, as a statutory consultee, for assessment. AIA will assess such applications, in conjunction with National Air Traffic Services (NATS), and forward a formal response to the LPA.

Please note that whilst every effort will be made to offer pre-application advice on turbine proposals with regard to suitability of location (physical safeguarding), technical effects on radar and navigational systems are assessed by NATS. NATS offer a chargeable pre-application service.

Cranes and other construction equipment

Cranes and other tall construction equipment operating with 6km of the airport require a crane permit.

Cranes and other tall construction equipment can cause a serious hazard to flight safety, by impacting obstacle limitation or instrument flight procedure surfaces and/or affecting navigational aids and communication equipment. Our crane permit leads will assess your proposed construction operation to ensure this can be undertaken without impacting air safety.

Please click here to apply for a permit.

Charges for this service are detailed below:

Standard (> 40 working days) £250
Ad-hoc (< 40 days, > 5 working days) £300
Unforeseen (< 5 working days, > 48 hours) £350
Urgent (< 48 hours) £400
Amendment/Extension £65
Initial IFP assessment POA
Detailed IFP assessment POA

We encourage you to apply as early as possible as detailed safety assessments, if required, may take longer to complete.

Additional technical assessments may be required which may incur additional charges.

A copy of your permit must remain with the crane for the duration of the operation and must be produced if requested by airport staff or the police. Under the Air Navigation Order it is an offence to act recklessly or negligently in a manner likely to endanger aircraft.

For any enquiries please contact [email protected].

Further guidance

For an overview on Aerodrome Safeguarding and an understanding of what may or may not effect AIA operations, please refer to the AIA Aerodrome Safeguarding Guidance Document.

For further guidance on issues relating to aerodrome safeguarding in general, please refer to the Airport Operators Association Guidance Notes.
