10 April 2018 | The trial of Class E airspace services at Hobart and Launceston airports

In 2017 Airservices undertook a high level review of current airspace design and has identified an airspace design solution that supports our operating environment in Tasmanian airspace and is proposing a trial of Class E airspace over the Class D Regional Tower airspace volumes in Tasmania. This entails the reclassification of Class C airspace to E/D airspace over the control towers at Hobart and Launceston airports. Existing Class C airspace will be replaced with Class E airspace and the vertical boundary of the Tower Class D volumes will be raised to 6500ft.

Read our fact sheet for more information.

Airservices will be available to discuss the proposed airspace change at the following locations:

  • Session post CASA TAS RAPAC meeting
    11th April 2018 1pm–2pm
    Barilla Bay, Pearl Room, 1388 Tasman Highway, Cambridge
  • Meeting in Launceston
    12th April 2018 2pm–3pm
    Launceston Airport board room

Feedback about the proposed trial can be given to us at the forums identified above or via our contact form (select Tasmanian airspace trial as the subject). Please provide feedback by 4th May 2018.

23 February 2018 | UNICOM Training Package

Airservices is pleased to announce the development of a training package for Universal Communication (UNICOM) services as part of our ongoing commitment to promote and foster civil aviation.
The training package was developed to offer potential industry benefit by contributing to enriching the value of information available to non-controlled aerodromes.

The UNICOM traffic information service is provided to enhance pilots’ situational awareness and Airservices are proud to proactively contribute to building industry capability in managing safety, risk and traffic growth at regional aerodromes.

A copy of the training syllabus will be available through Airservices until 30 September 2018. For further information, or a copy of the training syllabus please contact stakeholder@airservicesaustralia.com

The information contained in the UNICOM training package is provided for general guidance and information purposes only. Airservices Australia does not represent that the materials will satisfy your regulatory obligations and recommends that you obtain your own independent professional advice regarding any applicable regulatory approvals or licenses required before relying on its contents.

The comprehensive suite of training materials and a facilitator guide have been provided to the Australian Airports Association. The Australian Airport Association is reviewing the training package and how to make the training available. The AAA may also be contacted on 02 6230 1110 or info@airports.asn.au
