Bankstown Airport - Southeast VFR Corridor

Opens 15 Aug 2024

Closes 12 Sep 2024


Proposed Bankstown Southeast Visual Flight Rules (VFR) corridor
We are preparing an airspace change proposal (ACP) to establish 2 daytime visual flight rule (VFR) lanes to the south and south-east of the Bankstown control zone.

The proposed design is intended to reduce airspace risks associated with the constrained nature of the Bankstown control zone and sustained growth in air traffic in the region while also providing better access to the Sydney training areas.

We will be inviting feedback from the aviation industry and plan to open consultation on the proposal in mid-August 2024.

Please subscribe to our consultation and rulemaking list to get an email alert when consultation opens.

Airservices Australia has commenced early engagement with the local community about how consultation will take place. Find out more.
