Albany proposed broadcast area

Closes 8 Feb 2021

Opened 13 Jan 2021

Overview

The Office of Airspace Regulation is proposing a broadcast area in the vicinity of Albany, Western Australia, following issues raised by local stakeholders.

Due to the diversity in operations and a number of aerodromes in the vicinity, local stakeholders proposed the establishment a broadcast area to increase the situational awareness of pilots around Albany. This area will be a 50 nautical mile arc centered on Albany and following the coastline from the surface up to 10,000 feet above mean sea level.

The frequency for this area will remain as per the Albany Common Traffic Advisory Frequency (CTAF) (127.85). The standard non-controlled aerodrome requirements will apply.
