    Beyond The Blue Aerospace (BTBA), a rocketry organisation, is seeking to conduct rocket launching activity approximately 40NM Northwest of Goondiwindi, Qld, from 3-7 November 2022. 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 and another from FL125 to FL250 in the controlled airspace above.

    TRA Funny Farm Class G
    Lateral Limits: 4NM radius of 280742S 1494206E
    Vertical Limits: SFC to FL125

    TRA Funny Farm Controlled airspace
    Lateral Limits: 4NM radius of 280742S 1494206E
    Vertical Limits: FL125 to FL250
    Controlling Authority: Airservices Brisbane Operations Manager

    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

    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.
