Introduction to Obstacle Limitation Surfaces (OLS)


The airspace around each aerodrome must be protected from obstacles (trees, radio towers, cranes, etc.) so aircraft can safely enter and exit this space (take-off and land). To help aerodrome operators assess what is an obstacle and what is not, a number of 3D invisible surfaces are located around the aerodrome through which no object is allowed to penetrate.

During this 90-minute webinar we will discuss the characteristics of each Obstacle Limitation Surface, breaking down why each surface is so important to aircraft safety, and how to best monitor and manage this space at your aerodrome. This awareness training aims to provide the participant with an understanding of how to protect the OLS space around their aerodrome, as well as manage the risk if an obstacle is found during a serviceability inspection.
