CASA last week called on the aviation community to provide feedback to a review of the airspace surrounding Adelaide Airport.
The preliminary review by the Office of Airspace Regulation (OAR) covers a 36-nm radius around Adelaide and up to 8500 feet, which contains airports such as Parafield, RAAF Edinburgh, Gawler, Aldinga, Murray Bridge, Goolwa and Rowland Flat.
"CASA is required to conduct regular reviews of Australian-administered airspace under the Airspace Act," CASA states in the call for feedback. "The OAR is responsible for conducting these reviews on behalf of CASA.
"The OAR determines the need and priority for an airspace review based on information related to annual aircraft and passenger movements, aviation incidents and any feedback or information provided on issues related to airspace activity."
The objective of the review is to determine is the current airspace structure around Adelaide is appropriate, and will consider among other things:
- airspace efficiency
- equitable access to airspace
- national security
- airspace classification
- air navigation services provided.
Submissions to the Adelaide airspace review can be lodged on the CASA Consultation Hub website.
