Safety Action

Summary

Local Action

ATC Management at Perth has made the following recommendations:

  1. the use of runway 11/29 be restricted to only when operationally required;
  2. local Instructions be amended to ensure the SMC retains the flight progress strip on an aircraft until the aircraft is no longer under the SMC's control; and
  3. local ATC management to continue with its aim of having runway 11/29 withdrawn from operational use due to the traffic management complexities created by its use.

BASI Safety Action

As a result of this and other occurrences, the Bureau of Air Safety Investigation is investigating a safety deficiency.

The deficiency relates to the use of conditional clearances for runway entry and runway crossings by vehicles and aircraft, and the procedures used by air traffic controllers to alert themselves that vehicles or aircraft are on an active runway.

Any recommendation issued as a result of this deficiency analysis will be published in the Bureau's Quarterly Safety Deficiency Report.
