Aviation Engineering

A leader in aviation engineering, Woolpert works closely with the Federal Aviation Administration and state departments of transportation to maximize available funding while providing compliant and cost-efficient design. We also participate in state and national aviation dialogues through active membership in industry organizations that promote the health of aviation commerce. Our history of aviation services spans an entire century—dating back to work performed for Orville Wright. The depth of our services includes projects for the military, public and private airports, airport tenants, the FAA, state aviation departments and private developers. As a result, our staff is adept in both airside and landside airport developments that provide patrons with safe, cost-effective, sustainable and secure facilities.
