Notice of Final Change - Changes to General Aviation Aerodrome Procedures (GAAP), Class D procedures, and miscellaneous air traffic procedures
On 19 February 2010, CASA released for public comment NPC 172/04 Changes to General Aviation Aerodrome Procedures (GAAP), Class D procedures, and miscellaneous air traffic procedures.
The objective of the NPC was primarily to seek comment on proposed changes to regulations and aeronautical information relating to:
- introducing Class D procedures styled on those used in the United States of America at existing General Aviation Aerodrome Procedures (GAAP) aerodromes;
- aligning procedures for existing Class D aerodromes with those to be introduced at the former GAAP aerodromes;
addressing findings of the 2008 ICAO USOAP audit with respect to wake turbulence and visual separation requirements; and
- correcting a number of obsolete or non-standard entries in MOS Part 172.
The period for public comment on the proposals contained in the NPC closed on 19 March 2010.
The purpose of this NFC is to provide details of comments received on the NPC, to provide CASA’s response to those comments, and to list the final changes to be made to MOS Part 172 and the Australian AIP, resulting from the NPC consultation process.
