    A Temporary Restricted Area (TRA) is proposed for the Shellharbour Airport for the annual Airshows Downunder Shellharbour Airshow. This TRA will ensure the safe separation of any display aircraft from any transiting/local traffic. The TRA will only be in place during practice and display times. A Unicom will be operated on the Common Traffic Advisory Frequency (CTAF) throughout all times the TRA is in place.

    The issue

    The proposed TRA will extend 5NM out from Shellharbour Airport, over land only, excluding Bass Point, from ground level to 8500' (excluding controlled airspace)

    The TRA will only be active during practice and display times which are as follows:

    Practice Friday 1st March 1230-1630 local time.

    Displays Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd 1000-1630 local time.

    A Unicom will operate on the Shellharbour CTAF 127.3 for the duration of the TRA as well as before and after the proposed times to assist in traffic separation. Priority will be given to any Med/RPT flights.
