Consultations and advisories explained
We publish new consultations and advisories once a week, on Thursdays. You can find matters that relate to your geographic location using the main menu.
We also send a weekly email to subscribers telling them about new posts to the forum. To get these emails sign up to the mailing list.
We call a proposal or issue that is open to feedback from the aviation community a consultation.
- Feedback goes direct to a nominated contact person. We do not mediate or monitor consultations though this forum.
- If you use the forum for a consultation, you must give us a summary of the outcome within 10 days of the closing date.
You can also tell the community about a decision or event without needing a response. We call these advisories.
Below are the types of matters that relate to this community:
Declaring or removing a prohibited, restricted or danger airspace
Communications and frequency nomination
Changes to aeronautical information such as AIM products
Airspace classification and structure
Setting up Broadcast areas
Affects to airspace users due to major events
Changes to meteorological products
Find matters that affect you
Each week, new posts will appear on the homepage. You can also find matters that affect you by geographic location.
- To find matters that relate to your local airspace, go to the relevant state or territory page(s) in the main menu.
- The national page shows matters that are relevant to the wider aviation community in Australia or may effect many states or territories.
Respond to consultations
To give feedback, get in touch with the nominated contact person using the details provided in the consultation.
In your response, outline the potential impacts in detail.
- Describe how the matter may affect you or your operations.
- Outline any broader effects on the community.
- Ensure you support your claims with evidence, not just opinion. Include the sources of your evidence.
Please note that your response may be one of many. This could mean that the outcome of the consultation is different to your own submission.
