To seek feedback from industry on the proposed Temporary Restricted Area (TRA) ‘Lightning’ to support RAAF Exercise Lightning Storm

The issue

Elements of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) will be conducting Exercise Lightning Storm 2020 (LSM20) from 10 AUG – 03 SEP 2020. LSM20 is an essential tactical training activity for RAAF to integrate operations across multiple platforms and capabilities to both train and retain currency in Offensive and Defensive flying tactics.

One TRA is proposed to extend permanent Restricted Areas in support of this exercise and maintain safety to civil airspace users. Please see the attached paper for further information on the proposal.
