Apply for an obstacle permission

  • Permit or other obligation
  • Nationwide
  • Public service

To apply for a permission to set up an obstacle to air navigation, the one setting up the obstacle must first obtain a statement from the air traffic service provider (ANS Finland). Instructions on how to apply for a statement are given on ANS Finland website (only in Finnish). For wind powerplants located at sea (even if near the shore), a statement from the Finnish Border Guard must also be obtained.

Obstacle permission is not needed, if the obstacle statement confirms that the obstacle has no effect on flight safety. In that case, the obstacle statement is regarded as a sufficient basis for setting up the obstacle, and Traficom’s approval is not needed. Any conditions for setting up the obstacle are given in the obstacle statement. If the obstacle is considered to have an effect on flight safety or the flow of air traffic, or if it is located close to an aerodrome, the obstacle statement will indicate that permission for setting up the obstacle must be applied from Traficom. Regardless of what is said in the obstacle statement, anyone who intends to set up an obstacle has the right to apply for permission from Traficom.

If an application for permission to set up an obstacle to air navigation is submitted to Traficom, ANS Finland's statement must be attached.

The processing time for the application varies according to the type of obstacle.
