    The issue

    • Activation of proposed TRA ‘PORCUPINE’ and TRA ‘COPPERFIELD’ to extend R737

    • TRA ‘COPPERFIELD’ dimensions support aircraft operating to Kidston (YKID)

    • No additional air routes are affected beyond those already affected by R737 activation

    • Airspace is designed to remain clear of air routes W387 and B587 • Conditional status of TRA will be RA2
