To seek member feedback on proposed temporary restricted airspace (TRA) enabling Defence support to the New South Wales Government’s Australia Day activities within the Sydney Basin.   

The issue

The NSW Government will be sponsoring a number of activities in the airspace above Sydney Harbour on Australia Day, Wednesday, 26 January 2022. Planned events include operations that affect R405B, uncontrolled (Class G) airspace to the east of the Harbour Bridge, as well as operations above within civil controlled airspace. 

The proposed TRA is to encompass the lateral dimensions of R405B and extend to the east, encompassing a portion of Class G airspace adjacent to the Victor 1 VFR coastal route. These lateral dimensions are consistent with TRA design used to support Australia Day activities over previous years, as per Figure 1. R405B is to be deactivated with this TRA superimposed.  

The proposed vertical extent is to encompass SFC to A080, as is specifically necessary to contain the F-35A handling display.

The duration of TRA activation is expected to occur around midday and last no more than 60 minutes, promulgated via NOTAM and AIP SUP.  

Please see the attached paper for further information.
