An aeronautical study is a process of examining an aeronautical concern in order to assess its impact and identify, if needed, possible solutions not adversely affecting the safety and regularity of aircraft operations.
A safety assessment is a risk management process that is used to assess safety issues, such as: deviations from standards and regulations, changes at an aerodrome or any other safety issues or hazards that may affect aerodrome infrastructures, systems or operations.
A new object or the extension of an existing object can affect the safety of aircraft operations and can also have an effect on the regularity of aircraft operations, such as an increase of operating minima, ANSP procedures changes/review, reduced traffic flow or degraded take-off aircraft performance (i.e. one engine inoperative), turned off navaids. Moreover, it can be noted that a solution may perfectly solve the safety issue but in the same time have an adverse effect on the regularity of aircraft operations.
These changes can be determined by objects that can have different impact on the navigation both in terms of new obstacles that can affect the surfaces rather than have an EM impact that requires further studies to be analyzed by the CNS expert.
