An ongoing partnership between Carmanah and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) during the course of 2002/2003 has lead to the development of Project: General Aviation Lighting Aids.
This project will examine current recommendations to develop cost-effective lighting solutions for General Aviation Airports, in comparison to more costly certified FAA lighting equipment for Commercial, Part 139 airports.
The FAA is expected to visually inspect one of Carmanah's airfield installations in 2003. Carmanah continues to stimulate R&D iniatives for cost-effective lighting solutions in the General Aviation Industry. Through close partnership with leading federal agencies (FAA), industry consultants and leading airport advisory committees (IES), Carmanah continues to strive towards improving airport safety and overall efficiency for airports worldwide.
