Mangalore aeronautical study

Closed 30 Sep 2021

Opened 6 Sep 2021

Overview

The Office of Airspace Regulation (OAR) is conducting an aeronautical study of the Mangalore area in Victoria as outlined in the terms of reference, provided below.

The study will review the airspace within a 25 nautical mile area of Mangalore, including nearby aerodromes, Puckapunyal, Graytown, Euroa and Locksley Field, up to 8500 feet above mean sea level.

The OAR will be looking at traffic types and density from over the last 5 years and considering the feedback from the Australia Transport Safety Bureau’s report into the mid-air collision that occurred in 2020, should the final report be released before the conclusion of the study.

The study will evaluate the suitability of the airspace, including efficient use, equitable access for all users, appropriateness of the airspace classification and the existing services and facilities provided by the air navigation service provider.
