Hillsboro Airport 18B Survey - Portland, OR

Continental Mapping provided an 18B obstruction survey for the Port of Portand and Hillsboro Airport (HIO) located in Portland, Oregon in support of runway and taxiway adjustments.

Continental Mapping provided an 18B obstruction survey for the Port of Portand and Hillsboro Airport (HIO) located in Portland, Oregon in support of runway and taxiway adjustments.

In early 2011, Hillsboro received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approval to shorten and rehabilitate a runway and relocate a taxiway. Following that approval, HIO initiated an Airport Airspace Analysis Survey (AAAS) for a Runway Without Vertical Guidance (NVG), to be submitted to the FAA’s Airport Surveying-GIS Program (AGIS). The Port of Portland engaged Continental Mapping through our master contract agreement for mapping and surveying services to perform photogrammetry and mapping in support of the AAAS.

Continental Mapping collected leaf off photography and performed mapping and DTM creation, and from there generated orthophotos. All mapping was done in accordance to the feature specifications identified in AC 150/5300-18B. All data checks were completed with the AGIS portal and obstruction surfaces were delivered to the client upon completion.

During the airspace analysis, Continental Mapping worked with the Port’s survey crew to verify numerous structures including buildings, abandoned utility poles, power transmission pylons, and several non-communication towers. Consitent and regular communication between the organizations proved very beneficial to the success of the project.
