Operational Concept Development and Master Planning

Capacity and efficiency are key to any airport offering, providing a competitive commercial and operational edge with which to attract airlines. Investing capital in infrastructure, technology, processes and training only when necessary and with clear, timely and measurable outcomes is an essential enabler to effective airport growth.

Reid Aviation Solutions' team members have been at the forefront of capacity, master planning and system improvement at the world’s busiest airports. From 50+ single runway concepts to innovative automated ATC systems, tailored around specific aircraft types, we are renowned for our experience and innovative approach.

Whether you are an equipment manufacturer looking for support in developing the next generation of supporting technology or an airport, ANSP, airline or government looking to understand, design, improve, or innovate any element of the Air Traffic Control system, Reid Aviation Solutions can provide tailored solutions as your trusted concept partner.

Airspace & Procedure Design Solutions

Airspace and procedure design are multi-disciplinary skills, requiring detailed knowledge of the principles of Instrument Flight Procedures (IFP) design, aircraft performance and the evolving regulatory landscape, together with an understanding of local communities' concerns and aspirations.

Reid Aviation Solutions excels at managing the complex operational and environmental requirements faced by airports, providing tailored airspace design solutions.

We take ownership of airspace projects dealing with day-to-day regulatory, operational and PR issues, whilst at all times keeping customers involved in key decisions. We have extensive experience in all aspects of airspace and procedure design, from managing the introduction of RNAV Standard Instrument Departures (SIDs) at major international airports, to providing innovative options for aircraft dispersal on highly sensitive noise routes.

We also partner airports on an ongoing basis, negating the need for in-house expertise and ensuring ongoing regulatory compliance and an effective community interface.

From a specific Airspace Change Proposal (ACP) to the ongoing management of community engagement, Reid Aviation Solutions has the expertise, credibility and empathy to be your airspace management partner of choice.

Investment Support and Business Development

Runway and system capacity is at the heart of any airport investment decision. Determining how many aircraft movements (and therefore passengers) can be delivered using existing infrastructures is a key driver of value.

Reid Aviation Solutions provides system capacity advice, upon which investors can make informed investment decisions. Truly understanding what is possible with and without capital investment can provide investors with a competitive edge. We also work with investors and operators post initial investment to improve airside and airspace flows to maximise asset value and avoid unnecessary capital spend.

Reid Aviation Solutions' team members also have extensive and unparalleled experience of commercialising Air Traffic Control and Engineering Services and expanding services into new geographic regions. We have experience worldwide and so we understand the cultural and political landscapes underpinning operational performance and development on all continents.

Whether investing in the Air Traffic Management or Airport sector, or looking to globalise aviation services, Reid Aviation Solution is a partner and advisor that can add value to any deal.

Safety Management

Safety is always the number one priority in any Air Traffic Management system. The integrity of the supporting technology, processes and culture is critical to maintaining an effective and demonstrably safe operation.

Reid Aviation Solutions has unparalleled experience and understanding of operational safety management with many of the team holding or having held senior safety accountabilities at some of the busiest air traffic control operations in the world. We understand what is required to ensure safety and regulatory compliance in complex operational environments and how to support managers in the demonstrable and effective discharge of accountabilities.

Reid Aviation Solutions partners with Airports and ANSPs of all sizes to provide tailored safety management solutions.

Intelligent Analytics and Decision Making Support

Truly understanding the Air Traffic Management environment and how it effects airline and airport operations is a key element in optimising day-to-day delivery.

Reid Aviation Solutions is confident and experienced in working either holistically with customers or on specific issues. We ensure that analysis reveals fully the data set to support intelligent planning and fully understand how the ATC system can be shaped around customer requirements.

Whether a hub airline looking to optimise passenger and airframe flows through collaborating with and shaping the ATC system or an airport looking to improve turn around times and ground flows through an understanding of network dynamics, Reid Aviation Solutions can provide analytics, insights and support to optimise your operation.

Really understanding our customers and their issues is the key to our success and exceeding expectations is a passion for the team.
