Port Lincoln air routes

Closed 23 May 2021

Opened 11 May 2021

Overview

The Office of Airspace Regulation is seeking your feedback on a proposal to change air routes in the vicinity of Port Lincoln, South Australia.  

Background

Airservices have proposed an amendment to the air traffic services (ATS) route structure at Port Lincoln to improve traffic management. Currently, aircraft track into Port Lincoln from the east via air route V205 and outbound to the east via V707.

These ATS routes do not provide sufficient lateral separation with ATC using a tactical waypoint to manage this issue. 

Proposal

It is proposed that V205 be replaced with a new air route, V538. A new waypoint would also be introduced (TEKOD) between Port Lincoln and the PILBY waypoint.

Documents for review

A copy of the proposal is provided in the report below.

If you would like to provide further feedback, please email OAR@casa.gov.au. Feedback submitted by email will be considered but cannot be published publicly. 

Further information about airspace regulation and the airspace change process is available on the CASA website.
