Brockenbrough’s practice within the aviation market sector includes all of its disciplines working at both commercial and military facilities. The majority of our experience is with surveys, airfield lighting, airfield parking and paving, and aircraft refueling systems.


Brockenbrough has experience in airfield paving layout and design including taxiways, aircraft parking, and striping. For example, at Lajes Field in Portugal we were tasked with analyzing the existing Apron E aircraft parking plan (KC-135s and C-141s) for compliance with airfield, aircraft, and airspace clearance criteria. As part of the project, Brockenbrough created and analyzed several alternative parking and movement plans for C-17s, C-10s, KC-767s, E-4s, and C-5s. This task was complicated by having to account for the fact that the KC-767 is refueled from the left side, not the right side, which required us to design extra long reach pantographs to accommodate the difference.


Our airfield lighting experience includes apron, taxiway and runway lighting and signage systems along with visual and instrument navigational aid systems (NAVAIDS). At Marine Corps Air Station Miramar (California), Brockenbrough designed new aircraft fueling lanes including connecting taxiways. The taxiways and fueling lanes included edge lighting. In the fueling lanes, since they are not always in operation, locally controlled edge lighting and signage was incorporated into the existing airfield lighting circuit by use of a Circuit Selector Switch. For Fort Drum (New York), Brockenbrough designed new taxiways for access to the existing Oasis fueling area. As part of this project, taxiway edge lights were added and existing lighting reconfigured due to the widening of existing taxiways.
