Aviation Infrastructure Development

ENCODE AVIATION LTDA., specializes in the design of:

  • Aerodromes,
  • Heliports,
  • Hangars,
  • Related infrastructure works.

The hangars and heliports can be designed in the following configurations: portable and marine (lightweight metal structures ideal for ports, ferry terminals and vessels) for public or private use.

These designs comply with ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) and FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) regulations, as well as national standards, such as these of UAEAC (Special Administrative Unit of Civil Aeronautics) for the design of aviation infrastructure.

The Company’s engineers analyze the specific needs of their customers, assisting them in choosing the location, size and infrastructure for the construction of aerodromes, considering the possibility of future expansion.

The technical studies conducted by ENCODE AVIATION, include the following:

  • Wind analysis,
  • Study of flight weather conditions,
  • Definition of reference temperature,
  • Definition of obstacle limitation surfaces (OLS) applicable to the aerodrome, paying special attention to power lines, antenna towers and other objects in the surrounding environment,
  • Study and detailed design of the physical and geometrical characteristics of the heliport,
  • Study of signals and other visual aids, as well as description of the characteristics and dimensions of the elements used,
  • Fire protection planning and implementation,
  • Study of takeoff and landing procedures,
  • Communication system for the transmission/submission of flight plans.
