Tasmania frequency changes

Closed 23 May 2021

Opened 11 May 2021

Overview

The Office of Airspace Regulation is consulting on a proposed change to frequencies in Tasmania.

Background

Airservices have proposed amendments to the Class A, C, E and G frequency boundaries in Tasmania.

Airservices advises this re-alignment and rationalisation of frequency boundaries is intended to simplify frequency requirements and improve efficiency, traffic management and overall safety in preparation for projected traffic increases.

This change will also address issues arising from short term weather phenomena that impact certain frequencies by providing suitable alternate frequency options or coverage.

Proposal

The proposal will:

  • delete ATC Low Sectors Tasmania A, B and Huon C
  • amend four Flight Information Areas (FIAs), three E frequency boundaries and the ATC low sector huon B
  • create one new FIA, twelve E Frequency Boundaries and one ATC low Sector.

Documents for review

A copy of the proposal is provided 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.
