Expert opinion for the relocation of a helicopter low altitude nightflight corridor on behalf of wpd onshore GmbH & Co. KG (2014)

In October 2014  aviare  was contracted by wpd onshore GmbH & Co. KG for the creation of a flight operation expert opinion regarding the planning of wind energy plants. This involved in detail a helicopter low altitude night flight corridor, which runs along the planned location of a wind farm north of the town Hofgeismar in Hesse. With the initial planning, massive conflicts would have occurred concerning the obstacle clearance in this area.

The assignment included not only the flight operational evaluation but also the development of an alternative routing which is going to be used mainly by the weapon system Tiger of the combat helicopter regiment 36.

The alternative routing developed by aviare for low altitude night flight training met a broad consensus at the army aviators in Fitzlar. Thus, a prompt and efficient solution for all parties could be found.
