Obstacle data providers

 

Many public and private sector organisations across Australia maintain information and data on objects or structures that may affect aviation safety. Examples of these may include telecommunication towers, wind turbines or buildings such as light houses or office blocks.

Under CASR Part 175 Airservices Australia will have the authority to contact you from 5 March 2015 to request information and data on any object or structure owned or managed by your organisation. These objects or structures will typically be 100 metres or more in height, however Airservices Australia will be able to request the information on any object or structure in the interests of aviation safety.

Under CASR Part 139, aerodrome operators are required to establish and monitor an Obstacle Limitation Surface (OLS) for their aerodrome and to publish AOCs type A and B. CASR Part 175 allows Airservices Australia to collect data on objects and structures that penetrate the OLS and that are included on an AOC Type A or B.

Airservices Australia may seek information on:

  • the person who owns, controls or operates the object or structure
  • the name, identification or designation of the object or structure
  • the type of object or structure, including whether it is a building, telecommunications tower or wind turbine
  • the geographic location of the object or structure
  • the height and elevation above mean sea level of the object or structure
  • whether the object or structure is marked, and if so, how
  • whether the object or structure is lit, and if so, how well
  • any other data that is necessary in the interests of aviation safety.
