PEC is committed to offering superior aviation consulting services for airport clients throughout the state. As part of our strategic plan, growth in this project service area remains a primary focus. In the last twenty years, PEC has completed more than 100 projects for 11 airports, making us a leader in general aviation engineering.

Our aviation project team specializes in airport planning and design, with particular expertise in these areas:

  • Conceptual planning

  • FAA Environmental Assessments / Permitting

  • Land acquisition management

  • Lighting and power requirements


  • Hangar and warehouse design

  • Airport Security Fencing

  • Drainage

  • Pavement design

Our project managers have excellent working relationships with the LADOTD Aviation Division and the FAA, which expedites and enhances our clients’ project development and implementation. PEC has worked with the FAA on more than 100 airport projects, developing a thorough familiarity with its regulations, policies, and procedures. Due to our continuous work in aviation-related projects, our relationship with the FAA and knowledge of its guidelines remain current. Our key personnel are extremely familiar with FAA guidelines and design criteria, such as airport drainage, geometric standards, and pavement design.

We emphasize design economics in all stages of a project, from airport lighting to runway rehabilitation to new pavement construction. We offer extensive experience with the design procedures and approval methods necessary to complete a wide range of aviation projects. Our broad foundation in developing Airport Layout Plans (ALP) facilitates a final design and constructed facility that meet the operational requirements of the intended aircraft service. We offer expertise and a proven track record in cost-effective airport/pavement rehabilitation design.

Our broad base of projects has provided PEC with extensive design experience and a thorough understanding of procedures, approval methods, and design steps, which allows us to complete projects on time and on budget.
