Obstacle and operational Safety Assessment of a new hangar
Malta International Airport
Malta International Airport commissioned airsight to analyse the impact on safety of a new hangar (ICAO Annex 14 and PANS OPS), representing a potential infringement of the applicable ICAO obstacle limitation surfaces. Besides the new building itself, airsight also evaluated other obstacles, such as the hangar construction site (including cranes), existing buildings or mobile objects (taxiing or parking aircraft) for all runways and operations.
The most important outcome of the study is that the hangar could be erected, and the additional results of the safety assessment served as a basis to determine the most efficient mitigating measures balancing both safety and operational constraints.
