    The Office of Airspace Regulation(OAR) is seeking feedback to determine whether the recommendations from the 2017 airspace review were beneficial to airspace users.These changes were implemented 18 months after the review.

    The issue

    During 2017 the Office of Airspace Regulation (OAR) undertook an airspace review of Horn Island. As a result of the review, the OAR determined that the current airspace architecture is fit for purpose, but local area charting needed to be introduced for the Torres Strait areas to assist with operating into and out of Horn Island.

    Stakeholder feedback focussed on the need to add/improve charting in the area, better range required from the transmitter for the Automatic Weather Information Service (AWIS), as well as better targeted education for new pilots to the region regarding local flying operations.
