It seems hard to believe, but formal training is not required for personnel installing or inspecting
airfield markings by any governing agency in the world. Without required standards, the quality of
airfield markings, and therefore safety, varies dramatically at airports of every size.
How bright are your airfield markings at night? Are they safe for your
operations? Do they meet the newest FAA standards? Sightline's reflectivity
analysis will provide the answers you need.
At Sightline, we can nail down the numbers that will provide you with a realistic,
site-specific budget for your airfield marking program. Having an accurate idea of what
all the various aspects of your program will be, and will cost, requires knowledge of
the entire marking process.
Sightline created the Airfield Marking Assessment to provide your airport with an independent,
objective performance evaluation of runway and taxiway marking and a data-driven strategy for
predictive maintenance and budget forecasting.
The FAA and US Military require a life cycle cost analysis (LCCA) for certain airfield marking
materials to ensure a positive return on investment, including preformed thermoplastic and
reflective glass beads.
There's one sure way to guarantee that your new airfield marking project will be a
total success, regardless of which low-bidder was awarded the work. Call Sightline and have us
provide quality control technicians to monitor the project.
The level of success for new marking projects is often determined in the design stage.
We can assist you with your airfield marking design as well as ensuring proper layout
of the markings in the field.
