Air navigation safety


The presence of areas that attract wildlife can generate the so-called wildlife strike risk, i.e., the impact between an aircraft and one or more wild animals - predominantly bird strikes - with more or less relevant consequences, depending on the size and number of animals affected by the aircraft.



The presence of obstacles (trees, cranes, buildings, etc.) that can create the risk of collision between an aircraft and the same obstacle with serious consequences for the aircraft and passengers.




The improper use of remote pilot aircraft (eg. drones, model aircraft) which pose a risk to the aircraft and passengers on board since these can generate a collision risk between the aircraft and the flying object itself.




Neglect of zones and woody areas/farm fields outside the aerodrome's boundary can cause fire. This can limit the aerodrome operations and generate suspended material in the atmosphere that could be aspirated by aeronautical engines.




Improper use of Chinese lanterns and any other flying object that released in the air around the airport can be aspirated by aircraft engines with serious consequences for the aircraft and its passengers.




Neglect of road maintenance around the aerodrome's outer perimeter which could hurt the speedy intervention of the rescue vehicles in case of necessity.




Improper use of lasers and, in general, hazardous , ambiguous, and misleading lights that could blind pilots during take-off and landing maneuvers, compromising their ability to carry out flight maneuvers safely.




Construction of highly reflective surfaces that could blind pilots during take-off and landing manoeuvres.




Infrared radiation, improper and unauthorized use of VHF radio and the presence of moving objects are also phenomena interfering with aeronautical communications, and navigation and surveillance systems.
