Aerodrome Protective Zones
Aerodrome protective zones include a series of surfaces that define the airspace in and around the aerodrome to be kept unobstructed in order to allow for safe aircraft operations and to prevent the construction of buildings, which would restrict the functionality of the aerodrome.
Aerodrome protective zones are defined by the aerodrome operators in accordance with Regulation No. 5/2010 amended and supplemented by Regulation No. 4/2016 on aerodrome protection zones, in accordance with the standards of Chapter 4, of Annex 14 of the Chicago Convention.
In order to maintain the safety of civil aviation in the Republic of Kosovo, it is of utmost importance that all legal entities and individual persons who own or plan to build a facility in the vicinity of an aerodrome, all institutions responsible for issuing building permits under Law No. 04/L-110, and all aerodrome operators, should cooperate and comply with the procedures prescribed in the regulation on aerodrome protective zones.
In order to support and facilitate the implementation of the regulation by the responsible authorities, the CAA has published a manual, TP-03 Aerodrome Protective Zones, which provides technical guidance for evaluating and defining these areas.
