Discussion Paper 1102AS - Revised Plan for Aircraft Communication, Navigation and Surveillance Equipage in this Decade
CASA published DP 1006AS “Proposed Strategy and Regulatory Plan in support of the Australian Government’s Aviation White Paper” as the first step in response to the Government’s National Aviation Policy White Paper published in December 2009. DP 1006AS outlined the modern technologies supporting future ATM and proposed a phased implementation of aircraft equipage upgrades for CNS.
CASA received 35 formal responses to DP 1006AS; 18 from key industry organisations, 4 from airlines and 13 from individuals. In its review of those responses, CASA observed that there was strong support for most of the proposals from the airline and commercial sectors of the industry but not from the visual flight rules (VFR) general aviation (GA), sport aviation and recreational aviation sectors.
The main area of concern from the VFR GA, sport aviation and recreational aviation sectors was with the proposals for all aircraft to be equipped with a Mode S transponder having Automatic Dependent Surveillance (ADS-B OUT) capability in all classes of airspace over the period up to year 2020. Those proposals have now been further examined and revised as outlined in this second DP.
Comment period now closed.
