Airport Certification

We provide a wide range of Services


Certified aerodromes, under the oversight of their responsible authorities, shall demonstrate and continually monitor compliance with a multitude of complex regulations and requirements to establish and maintain a high and uniform level of safety.

Due to extensive knowledge and experience in national and international specifications for the design and management of aerodromes, CPoint is uniquely capable to guide operators and authorities efficiently through the process of gaining and maintaining certification.

CPoint conducts tailored, independent and objective compliance checks and inspection services as well as safety assessments and supporting documentation to demonstrate acceptable levels of safety of possible deviations and ensure continued validity of certification.

CPoint offers in-depth experience in aerodrome design and the utilization of industry software to carry out compliance assessments in a timely manner, ensuring the highest accuracy.

Inspections are conducted off-site or on-site and can be tailored to specific areas (e.g. runways, taxiways, aprons, obstacle limitation surfaces), infrastructural elements (e.g. lighting, signs and markings), operations (e.g. Code F aircraft) and regulations (ICAO, EASA or national requirements).

Each assessment includes documentary evidence in form of comprehensive check-lists and audit reports as well as any possible findings and recommendations to implement necessary corrective actions.

Infrastructure compliance

With its well-structured approach and established compliance check lists and auditing tools, airsight considerably reduces the efforts required to assess regulatory compliance of aerodrome infrastructure.

Operational compliance

CPoint brings in-depth knowledge in assessing compliance of operational policies and procedures for the safe operation of aerodromes in accordance with certification requirements.

Aerodrome operators are responsible to establish responsibilities and procedures to ensure safe aerodrome operations. However, requirements are very broad and complex and to assess operations compliance and develop the best operational solutions, a perfect understanding of the specifications is needed.

Airsight brings comprehensive knowledge of requirements and benefits from years of experience in industry best-practice of aerodromes worldwide.

This enables us to conduct efficient compliance checks of operational subjects such as low visibility ops, winter ops (incl. de-/anti-icing), apron safety, marshalling, maintenance, aerodrome safeguarding, control of obstacles etc.
