    Black Sky Aerospace (BSA), a rocketry organisation is seeking to conduct rocket launching activities approximately 40 NM Northwest of Goondiwindi Queensland. Multiple windows are proposed in case of delays with the launching operations.

    The issue

    To mitigate residual airspace risks posed by the activity, a Temporary Restricted Area (TRA) is proposed from SFC to FL125 within Class G airspace.

    TRA Funny Farm Class G
    Lateral Limits: 2.5NM radius of 280742S 1494206E
    Vertical Limits: SFC to FL125
    Controlling Authority: BSA

    To mitigate residual airspace risk posed by the activity, a Temporary Danger Area (TDA) is proposed from SFC to A050 within Class G airspace.

    TDA Funny Farm Class G
    Lateral Limits: 3NM radius of 280742S 1494206E
    Vertical Limits: SFC to A050
    Controlling Authority: BSA

    Purpose

    To seek members feedback on the proposal to establish two TRAs due to high level rocket launching activity and one TDA due to rocket low level rocket activity.
