Airfield Electrical

Arora’s dedicated airfield electrical staff includes multiple AAAE Airport Certified Employees (ACE) in Airfield Lighting that utilize their experience and knowledge of current airfield products, standards, and installation practices to provide civilian and military airfield system designs. Arora’s team is engaged in industry leading organizations such as American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE), Airport Consultants Council (ACC), and the Illuminating Engineering Society Aviation Lighting Committee (IESALC) to stay current with best practices and changes in the industry. Throughout the life of the company, Arora has successfully designed airfield lighting systems for over a billion dollars of construction at airports across the United States. This knowledge and experience allow Arora to provide modern, coordinated, cost-conscious, and schedule-sensitive design solutions for large, medium, and small airport operations.
