Airspace change process
Any proposed changes to the Australian airspace architecture are managed through the airspace change process.
The proponent for any change should submit an airspace change proposal (ACP) form to the Office of Airspace Regulation (OAR) by email. The OAR will acknowledge receipt of all ACPs.
A change to the airspace architecture will be considered in line with the airspace principles outlined in the OAR Airspace Risk and Safety Management Manual. Approved airspace change proposals are legislated under the Airspace Regulations 2007.
Information about ACPs currently being assessed
The OAR regularly publishes a list of airspace change proposals under assessment. Consultation is required to be undertaken for any proposed airspace change.
For more information about an ACP, or to be included in the consultation process, contact the OAR.
Review of airspace change decisions
Stakeholders may seek clarification or review of any airspace change decision by contacting the OAR.
