On-site Airport Inspections – West Africa
Contact Consulting Department
This autumn, airsight inspectors were deployed in West Africa to perform several airport inspections to assess the compliance status with regards to ICAO Annex 14.
airsight can look back on many challenging airport inspections in several different countries such as Seychelles or Cameroon. In this particular case the greatest challenge was to meet the very tight timeline of the client. The period between the first contact and the airsight team touching down on African ground was only three weeks. Of course, many many requirements regarding vaccination, visa and travel arrangements had to be fulfilled in this short timeframe.
The objective of the on-site inspections was to provide the client with a compliance status for more than five airports according to ICAO Annex 14. Based on the observations, our inspectors developed possible solutions to rectify any non-compliances with a proposed action plan. On-site, the airsight inspectors were accompanied by the local airport staff to ensure the safety and efficiency of the inspections.
For projects like this one, airsight can choose inspectors from its experienced resident pool of engineers. Comprehensive checklists, measuring devices as well as geo-referenced cameras allow the team to assess the compliance status of airports. A great portion of work is also performed remotely using satellite photos, CAD-files or existing photo documentations.
