Topic code: 
Airspace and Aerodromes
Project status: 
Closed

Project closure notes

Amendments to Manual of Standards (MOS) Part 172 and AIP came into effect on 3 June 2010 to implement Class D procedures at former General Aviation Airport Procedures (GAAP) aerodromes, and to standardise procedures at the new and existing Class D aerodromes according to US-style Class D procedures.

CASA Instruments 142/10 and 143/10 were made to give effect to some of the AIP changes and are available on the CASA website.

The latest AIP amendment incorporating the 3 June 2010 is available on the Airservices Australia website.

The changes to MOS Part 172 are available on the CASA website.

The revised VFRG is available on the CASA website.

Training and education material is available on the CASA website.

Issue

Standards require immediate attention as a result of CEO Directives and progress in ICAO and developments in Australia. Also, since originally drafted in 1996, there are many obsolete references which require attention.

Background

  1. CASA has issued a directive to establish Class D services at airports currently using General Aviation Airport Procedures (GAAP) by April 2010. This will require several changes to the MoS.
  2. Wake Turbulence standards need to be brought up to date with ICAO PANS - ATM (Doc 4444) and to formalise the inclusion of standards in respect of the Airbus A380.
  3. Visual separation standards have been reviewed and will be brought into line with ICAO PANS - ATM (Doc 4444).
  4. New standards consistent with ICAO recommendations under the general consideration of Performance Based Navigation (PBN) are being progressively implemented.

Benefits

  • Standardisation of separation standards for Air Traffic Control.
  • Correction of out of date material.
  • Support for necessary changes.

Project Objective

The objective is to complete a Notice of Proposed Change for an up-to-date edition of the Part 172 MoS by 10 December 2009.
