On 28 Apr 2022, ADF Airspace released an AVSEF - NSW & Qld - Major proposed changes to overland permanent military flying areas (R559, R639) seeking feedback on the proposed airspace change. Due to a number of changes to the proposed airspace, a new AvSEF post has been opened for further consultation and seek feedback.
ADF Airspace is seeking feedback on major proposed changes to overland permanent military flying areas (R559, R639). Amended AVSEF is released for further consultation.
The proposal involves:
Separate to this proposal, a series of military Air to Air Refuelling and Airborne Early Warning and Control (MAAA) volumes will be designed in conjunction with Airservices and published in the Designated Airspace Handbook. These areas will complement operations, enhance lost efficiency and mitigate residual risk. Finally, transit corridors or flight plannable segments to get to/from the proposed areas will also be incorporated, and activated dynamically as utilised within the current airspace construct. Indicative images of these options are found in the attachments but do not form part of this Airspace Change Proposal.
It is intended that all non-flying and flying (i.e. aviation) tracking tolerances will be wholly contained with the proposed airspace.
