- Proposed Amendment to Manual of Standards (MOS) Part 139 - Aerodromes - Chapter 11
Part 139 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998 (CASR) currently prescribes the rules and procedures for aerodromes that are used for air transport operations. The regulations are supported by a Manual of Standards (MOS), which sets out the necessary technical standards for aerodromes, and a series of Advisory Circulars (ACs) which help facilitate compliance. The current version of the MOS is 1.10 dated May 2012.
In Chapter 11, there are standards for siting and clearance areas for airways facilities on airports. Airways facilities at an airport include aeronautical telecommunication and radionavigation facilities for communication, navigation and surveillance (CNS). These airways facilities are used for aircraft guidance and for air traffic control and thus are classified as safety critical services. Some of the facilities, in particular those for precision approach navigation, need to be positioned in precise geometric relativity to runways. Most of the CNS facilities have an associated site clearance area surrounding the site location to ensure proper operation of the facility.
