A guide to helipads and their different types

A guide to helipads and their different types

Helipads are landing pads designed for helicopters. They can be found almost anywhere, including the roofs of tall, private buildings and skyscrapers, in front of hospitals and healthcare facilities, golf courses, and other places where helicopters are commonly used. Generally speaking, helipads are large circular areas of concrete emblazoned with a large letter ‘H’ to signify their purpose.

The world of helipads is a little more complex than you might first imagine, however, and it continues to evolve in line with the needs of pilots. In this brief guide, we offer an introduction to helipads and their different types.

Heliports vs. helipads: What’s the difference?

Heliports are slightly more complex than standard helipads, acting almost like an airport specifically designed for use by helicopter pilots. They are typically found in built-up areas or places where helicopters are used frequently. They tend to include an array of amenities including fuelling stations, ticketing services, air traffic control facilities, and night landing lights. A heliport may even include a terminal building with retail outlets. Most airports feature heliports alongside their standard aviation facilities. In such cases, the heliport is usually found far away from the airport’s runways to avoid any safety or congestion issues.

What are helipads made from?

Helipads are typically constructed from steel or concrete embedded in the ground. However, in certain situations, they may be constructed with different materials to suit unstable surfaces. Helipads on offshore oil and gas platforms, for example, are often constructed using aluminium. Aluminium offers a range of benefits compared to standard concrete, including strong performance in saline environments, shorter assembly times, and lower operational and maintenance costs in the long term.

The low weight of the metal means aluminium pads can be added to almost any tall building. It has also seen a recent uptick thanks to environmental concerns, as aluminium is 100% recyclable.

As the helipad industry continues to evolve, we are likely to see an increasing number of aluminium models pop up around the world.

Innovations in helipad systems

The helipad industry has seen a number of new innovations in recent years thanks to the changing needs and demands of helicopter pilots. Firstly, new glass blasted surfaces have been introduced as they provide more friction than previous serrated surfaces. As well as making landing safer, they can help to reduce glare when it is sunny, making the job of landing a helicopter much easier.

Some helipad companies are also starting to include a range of new features such as handrails and LED lighting to make the experience of landing and getting into a helicopter easier and more pleasant.

Helipad matting

Helipad matting is a type of portable material that can be laid on a surface to create a temporary helipad. It provides a visual guide for helicopter pilots looking to land their vehicles and offers a safer take-off and landing experience. The most important way in which it does this is preventing something known as “brownout”, a loss of vision due to sand or dust being pushed into the air by the sheer strength of a helicopter’s downward force. Brownouts are well-known for posing a danger as they can cause spatial disorientation, confusion, and panic.

Specialised runway lighting – how it helps planes

Specialised runway lighting – how it helps planes

Runway lighting is a key necessity for the safe passage of air travellers or cargo. A modern marvel, airports in themselves are a statement to the ongoing progression of technology and state-of-the-art engineering. Runway lighting is an important staple for the landing and take-off of our pilots, further refining the efficiency of international flight.

 

Runway edge lighting is used to illuminate the edges of runways amidst times of poor visibility or darkness. There are a variety of specialised lighting systems, each classified depending on the intensity of light they are able to produce. There are 3 main categories: High-intensity Runway Lights (HIRL), Medium Intensity Runway Lights (MIRL), and Low Intensity Runway Lights (LIRL).

 

Whilst the runway may appear a confusing mess of lines and colour, each set of lights is impeccably planned, placed and assessed for its role in aiding take-off and landing.

 

Locating the edges of the runway is the most hazardous aspect of the pilot’s journey, hence why the edge lighting is white – so it is easily visible even on the darkest of nights!

 

The length of the runway also requires specialised lighting, this time colour-coded at intermittent distances, to provide the pilot with an accurate sense of how far along the runway they may be. Yellow replaces the white on the final 2,000 feet of the runway – starting what is called the ‘caution zone’. The lights at the end of the runway have dual properties, emitting red light towards the runway to highlight the end and emitting green light outward from the runway to indicate the landing threshold for aircraft above.

 

Another crucial feature of runway lighting is the centerline lights, spaced at exactly 50-foot increments for the purpose of aiding visibility. In poor weather conditions, judging distance can be a precarious task, but centerline lights dismiss this potential problem. Similar to the lights illuminating length, these also turn red in the final stages of the runway.

 

A fascinating part of runway specialised lighting, and arguably one of the most important, is the lighting for illuminating the specific landing section, what is appropriately named the ‘touchdown zone’. It is incredibly useful in assuring reliable accuracy in low-visibility conditions. These are made up of two rows of “transverse light bars” which symmetrically illuminate the runway centerline. These lights are white and start 100 feet after the landing threshold, finishing 3,000 feet beyond.

 

It is evident that specialised runway lighting plays a crucial part in the aviation industry, and maintaining the safety of large amounts of people, 24/7, 365 days a year. Such extensive focus and investment in specialised lighting technology guarantee reliability, accuracy and precision – three elementary factors of successful, long-lasting air travel. Without such advances in lighting, our air travel would be much more limited; imagine trying to land a plane at night with no clear idea of where you need to land, or how far along the runway the plane is.

 

Specialised lighting allows for night travel and travel in precarious weather conditions, and with plane travel being such an instrumental part of people’s daily lives, whether its an important meeting or a family emergency, accurate lighting technology allows for the needs of the people, whatever they may be, to be met with professionalism and reliability.

Aerospace Business

3 ways aerospace businesses can attract more customers in 2021

2020 was a difficult year for many businesses in the aerospace industry. Any business that relied on passenger numbers and commercial air transport for revenue took a significant hit thanks to covid. But with vaccines now rolling out, 2021 could be a much brighter year for many. Now that aerospace businesses are starting to plan for a post-covid world, it’s worth reevaluating your approach to lead generation and customer acquisition.

 

Below are some tried and tested methods for finding and acquiring new customers. Any business in the aeronautics and aerospace industries can benefit from incorporating these ideas into their corporate and marketing strategies.

 

Partnerships

 

One of the simplest and most reliable ways of reaching new audiences is through partnerships with other businesses. Partnerships should be beneficial to all the parties involved, but smaller businesses tend to benefit the most from these arrangements. The most logical businesses to partner with are those that have synergy with your products and services. Some businesses, such as Bayanat Engineering, which produces a range of technology for the aerospace sector, can form meaningful partnerships with numerous businesses throughout the industry. For example, they offer a range of technology for use in airport terminals. A partnership with a major airport could be very lucrative and lead to more opportunities in the future. Meanwhile, the airport can benefit from exclusive or cut-price access to any new equipment Bayanat adds to its lineup.

 

Identify your competitive advantages

 

Every business owner should be able to define precisely what their business offers that sets it apart from its competitors. A business’s unique selling point is the reason that its audience should choose it over the alternatives. But defining a competitive advantage can be a bit more tricky. A competitive advantage is something that enables your business to operate and generate revenue more efficiently than your competition.

 

The difference between a competitive advantage and a USP is that your competitive advantage is usually irrelevant to your customers. For example, having better back-end infrastructure and technology can be a significant competitive advantage, even if it doesn’t affect your customers’ experience of using your business. But by making customers aware of your competitive advantages, you can convince them that your business is superior more easily. Make them understand exactly why your business has the edge over other aerospace businesses. This is a particularly effective technique for B2B businesses.

 

Add value

 

You can never go far wrong if you are adding value to the products and services you provide. Anything you can do to provide your customers with more for every £ or $ they spend with you will make your business more attractive to them. This applies equally to businesses selling to other businesses and those selling to the general public. If you provide services to other aerospace businesses, adding more value will incentivise them to stick with you. Similarly, if you are selling to consumers, more value means their money will go further. A simple way of adding value is to introduce a loyalty scheme and reward customers for continuing to spend their money with you.

 

After a difficult year, many aerospace businesses need to find customers fast. The tips above will help you to grow your brand and find new opportunities. They are also effective ways of solidifying the loyalty of your existing audience.

Communication in the airport and marine sectors

Communication in the airport and marine sectors

In the maritime and aerospace industries, being able to communicate effectively and prevent intercultural misunderstandings can mean the difference between life and death. Thanks to advancements in technology, there are now numerous devices and systems available which help the airport and marine sectors communicate effectively. Let’s take a closer look at some of these technologies below.

 

UHF/VHF radio communication

 

Very high frequency (VHF) is commonly used for two-way land mobile radio systems, marine commutations and long-range data communication. Including waves from 30 MHz to 300 MHz, VHF frequencies are less likely to be interrupted by issues with electrical equipment, atmospheric noise and other interferences, making them suitable for professional applications. UHF, on the other hand, is much shorter in length than VHF but greater bandwidth occupation is permitted.

 

UHF radio waves generally only go as far as line of sight and anything in the way will interfere with the frequency, such as trees or buildings. However, UHF radio signals are still used in many facets of aerospace and marine work, including satellite, GPS and Bluetooth communication.

 

Voice communication control systems (VCCS)

 

VCCS connects various voice communication systems used for air traffic control, including VHF, phone and other ATC communications. This state-of-the-art technology is also used to support radio communications between air traffic controllers and aircraft.

 

AMHS and SWIM

 

As the aviation sector continues to expand, it is essential that air navigation service providers (ANSPs) share up-to-date and accurate information. For decades, the aeronautical fixed telecommunications network (AFTN) has played a vital role in allowing ANSPs to exchange messages which ensure safe air travel. However, the limited communication capacity and outdated technology of AFTN make it much more difficult to meet the needs of a growing sector. This is where SWIM, or system-wide information management, comes in. Designed to promote the standardisation of ATM information, it ensures aeronautical and meteorological information such as flight plans, weather bulletins and notices to airmen (NOTAMs) are shared more effectively between airlines, meteorology service providers and airport operations centres.

 

Marine RADARs

 

Recent developments in marine radar technology have led to improvements in the performance of radar processors and antenna units. Utilised in a variety of applications, including naval surveillance, secure navigation and oil spill detection, radar technology is essential in an environment like the ocean that is unpredictable. Even slight changes in conditions can happen instantly and with very little prior warning, so a reliable marine radar system is essential for ensuring everyone’s safety.

 

Oil spill radar sensors, in particular, can help to detect and monitor oil spills on the sea surface. Using a combination of horizontal resolution and low detection limits, these systems are now at the forefront of oil spill recovery operations.

Passenger Counting

Why passenger counting technology is essential for airport efficiency

 

Events of 2020 have had what may be a lasting impact on air travel, not least in raising issues around how airports manage the level of passenger traffic in and out of the airport. This article will look at these new considerations alongside the existing benefits of ensuring your airport has adopted high spec passenger counting technology

 

What does passenger counting technology do?

 

Put simply, passenger counting technology monitors and projects passenger volumes. Teams are able to observe things like the queue for security and passport control, understand any backlog at the baggage check and monitor how quickly arrivals are processed. All this happens in real-time so immediate action, like opening extra check-in desks or modifying queue strategy can be implemented.

 

What are the benefits of passenger counting technology?

 

You’ll be prepared

 

Being able to draw comparisons of traffic flow in different time frames gives insights that enable senior staff to be fully prepared before peak travel seasons, such as holiday times. The provision of granular data means it is easy to identify travel patterns at all times, so resources can be utilised effectively.

 

This is especially important in the current global crisis, with airports having to adapt to rule changes and new guidance at a short notice. Having a concrete understanding of potential passenger numbers means staffing levels can be adapted and potential compromises to passenger and colleague safety can be averted.

 

You’ll be able to take immediate action

 

Passenger counting technology runs side by side with queue management. You’ll see things like the number of passengers waiting at check-in desks, assess what’s happening in baggage claim as well as being abreast of the volumes in passport control. The technology even goes so far as to assess the number of people waiting to use toilet facilities, as well as how many are queuing up for a last-minute skinny latte, to grab a great book for the journey or a gift to take home.

 

Understanding where queues are building and the potential for a bottleneck scenario means action can be taken to redirect passengers and reduce perceived and actual waiting times. This in turn leads to better quality service, a greater sense of customer satisfaction and simplifies managing health and hygiene concerns.

 

Why does passenger counting technology have such a positive impact?

 

We are naturally more patient when we know what we’re dealing with. If we’re aware that there will be fifteen minutes wait, we adapt and “settle in” to the waiting. If we’re not sure what’s going on, or whether there is a delay, our anxiety buttons are pushed and we become impatient because we feel out of control. Being able to let passengers know how long they can expect to wait and being able to show that action is being taken to reduce congestion means customers feel more relaxed and get on with enjoying their journey.

Effective airport operations

Effective airport operations and how Bayanat Engineering Qatar solutions improve it

Effective airport operations are absolutely essential to successful aviation businesses. From making sure luggage ends up in the right place to check for any security threats to landing the planes themselves, every minor detail can affect the whole system. We look at some of the key factors necessary for an efficient airport, and how Bayanat Engineering Qatar solutions can improve your existing systems.

 

Excellent communication

 

Clear communication is essential for an efficient airport. Staff must be able to get in touch with each other at all times, to allow complex procedures like refuelling and baggage handling to go without a hitch. At Bayanat Engineering Qatar we offer a range of services to improve airport communication, including message handling & aeronautical information systems (AFTN/AMHS/AIS/AIM), UHF/VHF Radio Communications and Air-to-Ground and Ground-to-Ground communication systems. Ensuring that there are as many active communication channels as possible is key to speeding up procedures and avoiding any errors due to miscommunication. It is vital that team members get up to date information to coordinate with other airports and keep planes getting where they need to go.

 

Reliable infrastructure

 

For airport operations to be as effective as possible, there needs to be the correct infrastructure in place. Both the airfields and the terminals need to be thoroughly connected, with clear routes and the correct configuration. At Bayanat Engineering Qatar we can provide a whole range of services to improve airport infrastructures, such as airfield ground lighting and radio control towers.

 

Clear instructions

 

It is so much easier to make an airport run smoothly when everyone knows where they need to be and what they need to do. Clear signage that is easy to follow and understand is one of the main ways airports can improve passenger flow and speed up check-in processes. Making sure customers are aware of the security procedures they need to follow and the location they need to be at is crucial. Bayanat Engineering Qatar offers a range of specialised airport information display systems as well as digital signage and public address systems so passengers know everything they need to and can be quickly updated of any changes. We specialise in creating signage that is effective and understandable for passengers from around the world.

 

Digital solutions

 

Another way airports can improve their efficiency is by implementing digital solutions across the airport. The airline industry has been quick to embrace technology, and new digital solutions are constantly improving the way airports are run, whether it’s updating flight information on a tablet to using scanners to check luggage. The most efficient airports are full of innovative digital solutions, improving everything from navigation to customer experience. Air Traffic Management automation systems have transformed the airline industry and as more and more systems go digital, airports have seen huge improvements. High-tech solutions like digital surveillance systems enable airports to drastically improve their security and digital flow management systems are a huge time-saver for airport staff.

 

Accurate information

 

It is essential for airport operators to have access to as much accurate information as possible. This encompasses a whole host of data, from passenger numbers to accurate weather information to flight schedules from around the world. We can help airports with any number of data gathering tasks, including state of the art meteorological sensors, lightning detection systems and people counting technology.

What is Foreign Object Debris (FOD) and why is it important?

Foreign object debris (FOD) can cost airports and airlines millions of pounds each year because it can cause damage or injury to aircraft and airline personnel.

 

What is FOD?

 

FOD is foreign object debris that does not belong to or should be nowhere near any aircraft. It covers a wide range of debris material, which includes pavement chips, litter, building materials, sand, stones, luggage, and wildlife. It is often found at terminal gates, taxiways, runways, and in cargo areas, and poses a serious risk to an aeroplane should it come into direct contact with it. FOD could easily splice aeroplane tyres, or be ingested into the engines, which could have catastrophic consequences. Airports and airlines take measures to mitigate this risk by conducting regular and stringent safety checks.

 

Safety procedures are put in place to raise awareness of the seriousness of the issue and to take steps to address it. These measures include:

 

Employee training

 

All airport employees, including airline personnel, receive training to be able to identify and eliminate FOD. The training is provided to raise awareness of the potential hazards to equipment, people, and the costs associated with FOD damage.

 

Regular inspections

 

Frequent airside inspections are conducted. The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) requires a daily inspection of aeroplane manoeuvring areas during daylight hours and the rapid removal of FOD. In addition, airline personnel also make further checks throughout the day during their shift, and if there are any building works being undertaken on site, more frequent inspections are carried out. Flight crews are required to immediately report to air traffic control and operations if they observe any FOD on runways and taxiways. Airlines and aeroplane handling agents also employ additional staff to specifically monitor for FOD.

 

Maintenance procedures

 

Maintaining control of FOD involves the following:

 

Sweeping

 

This is either performed manually or with an airfield sweeper. However, both pieces of equipment are generally used. The airfield sweeper removes FOD debris from airside areas, including aircraft manoeuvring areas, aprons, gates, and the areas adjacent to them. For the areas where the airfield sweeper cannot reach, hand brooms are used.

 

Magnetic bars

 

Magnetic bars are fitted under vehicles that use the airfield to pick up fallen metallic material. These bars are regularly cleaned to prevent them from dropping collected debris.

 

Rumble strips

 

Driving over rumble strips can dislodge loose fittings from undercarriages. They are used in areas between the land-side and air-side, and adjacent to construction areas. These strips are checked regularly, and any FOD that is found is discarded.

 

FOD containers

 

Containers are strategically placed around the airfield for the collection of FOD debris, and they are emptied frequently to prevent overflow. Examination of this debris is undertaken to assess where it may have originated from. Wind barriers and netting are also used around the airfield and serve as barriers to catch airborne debris. They also prevent animals from entering the airfield.

 

Aircraft maintenance

 

Aircraft engineers have strict tool control procedures they have to follow. They carry toolbox inventories, and all toolboxes are checked before and after use, to make sure all tools are accounted for before an aircraft is released for flight.

Bayanat Engineering Qatar: Providing HIA with the best services time and again

 

The famous Wright brothers completed a successful flight in 1903, in North Carolina, which is widely agreed to be the beginning of aviation. Despite their successful flight, for many years the general public shunned air travel, as it appeared to be too dangerous. It was only after World War 1, and the funding that the aviation industry received, did air travel begin to look like a safe and reliable means of transport. Not long after the end of World War 1, Charles Lindbergh flew across the Atlantic in a solo flight which drew a lot of media attention, bringing interest in flying into the mainstream.

To capitalise on the interest in aviation created by Lindbergh, multiple air transport holding industries were founded, including Aviation Corporation, which would later be re-branded as American Airways. In 1928, United Aircraft and Transport Corporation, later renamed as United Airlines, was founded by Boeing, and air travel began its steady journey to becoming commercialised.
Before aeroplanes began carrying passengers commercially, they began carrying mail and cargo. The American Kelly Airmail Act of 1925 allowed aeroplanes to work as mail carriers, giving many airlines the opportunity to build revenue until they could expand and develop their airline to be suitable to carry passengers.
World War 2 saw commercial fleets of planes become necessary to transport soldiers and supplies around the world. Aviation companies received significant investment from European countries which allowed them to fully extend and develop their commercial aviation services. Post-WW2, in the 1950s, the aviation industry dramatically improved the regularity and comfort of commercial flights and jet-engine technology allowed flights to operate faster and more regularly.

The history of Qatar Airways
Qatar Airways, which is considered to be the best airline in the world, was founded in 1994 and began as a small regional airline that travelled only a few, select routes. In 1997, the airline was rebranded by His Highness the Father Amir, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, who wanted to turn the small airline into the world’s leading international airline. From 1997 onwards, Qatar Airways has aimed to offer the highest standards of service and comfort possible on a commercial airline and is continuously striving to offer its passengers a unique, excellent flying experience.
The airline averages a double-digit growth year after year, largely due to the leadership of the Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Akbar Al Baker, and the companies the Group Chief Executive has chosen to partner with.

Qatar Airways and Bayanat
Engineering Qatar
The international hub of Qatar Airways is HIA (Hamad International Airport) who have chosen time and time again to work with Bayanat Engineering Qatar. For example, in July 2020 HIA partnered with Bayanat Engineering to deploy a RunWize™ FOD Detection Solution and in October 2020 chose to work with them again to upgrade their communication systems. It is only through the support of HIA that Qatar Airways can continue to provide their exceptionally high levels of service.

Your ultimate guide to airfield ground lighting

Your ultimate guide to airfield ground lighting

Airplane passengers will have noticed the vast amount of lights when taking off or landing. If you aren’t in the field of aviation, you may wonder what all of these lights are for.

One fascinating fact is that the color and configuration of airfield lighting is universal. Whether you’re at JFK in New York, London Heathrow, or Dubai International Airport, the lights will be the same. This has a profound impact on safety – pilots know what to expect and how to read the lights, regardless of where they are in the world. So what are all these lights and what do they do?

Runway lighting

The runway is the path an airplane follows for take-off or landing. Next time you’re waiting for take-off and it’s dark, you might spot lines of white lights that transition to a warm yellow color. These are runway edge lights. This lighting marks the runway’s edge and guides pilots during approach and landing. They are usually used when it’s dark or visibility is poor. The color change marks the departure end of the runway. Runway edge lights are usually spaced around 60 meters apart.

You might also notice red and green lights at either end of the runway. These lights are known as runway end lights and are frequently elevated for maximum visibility. The approach end is marked by green lights, whereas the red lights are located at the departure end, and are a signal to pilots that this is the end of the runway.

The third type of runway lighting is runway guard lights, yellow lights that may be elevated and flashing, or maybe a row of embedded lights. They mark every intersection between the runway and taxiway – essential for guaranteeing safety with multiple aircraft moving on the ground.

Taxiway lighting

Taxiways allow airplanes to move from the landing point to hangars or terminal buildings. The vibrant blue lights you’ll see are taxiway edge lights. Similar to runway edge lights, they mark the edge of the taxiway. They are typically spaced between 15 and 60 meters apart.

For airfields with low visibility, these lights are frequently accompanied by green or blue centreline lighting. If visibility is good but flights operate at night, these two types of lighting may also be combined.

Stop bar lights

When you notice a row of steadily burning red lights, embedded into the pavement across the entire airfield, you’ve caught sight of the stop bar lights. Elevated red lights can also be used for low visibility conditions. These lights are controlled and indicate that the aircraft should wait. Once air traffic control gives clearance, the stop bar lights are turned off and the taxiway centreline’s lead on lights turn on instead. This indicates to the pilot that they may depart.

Essential safety tools

It’s clear that airfield lighting is vital for aircraft to take off, land, and taxi safely. As airports become modernized and more aircraft pass through, specialized airfield ground lighting becomes more important as an essential safety tool. Next time you’re about to take a flight, you can be confident that the lights you see are keeping you and your fellow passengers safe.

Bayanat Engineering Qatar: Providing modern, advanced solutions for airports

In order to understand the airports and its development – it is important to know its history, how it was created and came into the concept.

First airport and first airport in Qatar

When you think of the word, ‘airport’, you will most likely associate the term with the sleek, modern airports we have grown accustomed to today, such as Hamad International Airport in Qatar. Airports have, of course, not always been this way and have advanced significantly in the last 100 years. In this article we reflect on the world’s first airport, as well as the first airport in Qatar, and how companies such as Bayanat Engineering helped them become the modern transport facilities we know them to be today.

The world’s first airport

In 1919, over a 100 years ago, Hounslow Heath Aerodrome opened. Many people mistakenly believe the Wright Brothers developed the first airport, whereas, in reality, they developed the world’s first continually operating airfield. For an airfield to be classified as an airport, it needs to have an aerodrome, storage for aircraft and a control tower, making Hounslow Heath Aerodrome the world’s first official airport.
The world’s first scheduled international commercial air services flew to and from Hounslow before it shut its doors in 1920 after essentially being replaced by Croydon Airport. Just three years after Hounslow was founded, the world’s first permanent airport for commercial aviation services opened in East Prussia.

The first airport in Qatar

Dukhan airport was the first airport in Qatar and was completed in the late 1930s. While the airport was initially a commercial success, it was eventually overshadowed by Doha International Airport, which was built in 1959 and subsequently made Dukhan obsolete. Some buildings within the airport were preserved but the majority of the airport grounds were left to ruin.

The importance of development

If the founders of Dukhan airport and Hounslow Heath Aerodrome were able to walk around modern airports in Qatar today, the technology surrounding them would appear as if it came from science-fiction. In the past 100 years, technological advancements have been made at an astounding pace, meaning airports have been able to advance and develop at an unprecedented rate. Advancements in technology have brought many benefits to airports, such as allowing flights to take off more regularly and travel further distances.

How are modern airports built to address modern security risks?

Modern airports in Qatar, such as Hamad International Airport, are built to not only provide excellent commercial services but also to ensure the safety and security of all individuals who enter and exit the airport. For example, a modern airport must be complete with surveillance technology, structured cabling systems to allow for reliable communications, specialized lighting to ensure pilots have complete visibility and advanced navigation systems, to name but a few features.

Bayanat Engineering Qatar is proud to be working with Hamad International Airport in Qatar and other airports in Qatar to help them implement and utilize advanced communication, surveillance, air traffic management, navigation and terminal operation professional services. We respect the history of the world’s and Qatar’s first airports while we are dedicated to provide modern solutions for airports in operation today.
