Parkes Regional Airport Airfield Lighting Upgrade

for Parkes Shire Council

REHBEIN Airport Consulting was commissioned to prepare tender and construction documentation for the upgrade of runway, taxiway and apron lighting at Parkes Airport. Existing runway edge lights did not meet the latest standards in accordance with CASA Manual of Standards Part 139 and although an upgrade was not mandated, Council wanted to improve the safety and usability of the airport to existing and potential users.

In addition to elevation runway and taxiway/apron edge lights, provision was also made for the installation of a PAPI system and runway threshold identication lights (RTIL). A full pit and conduit system was provided in accordance with AS/NZS 3000:2007 Wiring Rules to ensure ease of expansion in the future to accommodate potential upgrades identified within the recent Airport Master Plan.
