Airspace Mitigation

Our mitigation study can provide the airspace changes that would be required to accommodate your project.

The mitigation studies that we provide to our clients identify the airspace changes that would be required in order for the project to become viable, based on business requirements. They also become roadmaps of the steps needed for us to advocate with government agencies on behalf of our clients.

Our goal in conducting airspace mitigation studies and advocacy is to strike a balance between the economic needs of our clients and the need to protect the national airspace system. To this end, we must often seek out creative ways in which client projects can be developed in a way that is acceptable to the FAA and local airport authorities.

Our team of experts is fully capable of identifying airspace impacts, validating impacts cited by the FAA, developing mitigation strategies and effectively communicating them to the FAA and local airport authorities on behalf of our clients.

By identifying airspace impacts early, we are able to get a head start on any necessary mitigation which helps streamline the FAA filing and aeronautical study process and enables our clients to avoid any unnecessary delays.

Mitigation Outcomes

Changing airspace is rarely a simple and straightforward process, and outcomes are never guaranteed. Therefore, during this process we also educate our clients on the likelihood of a successful mitigation. Outcomes include:


Airspace impacts are extensive and would significantly impact the use of airspace and would therefore be unacceptable for the FAA.


There are significant airspace impacts, but the FAA is willing to make some accommodations, ensuring that the project is still viable for the client.


Airspace impacts are minimal and we are able to identify changes deemed acceptable by the FAA in the interest of economic development.
