Safety Action


As a result of this incident, Airservices Australia recommended that:

  1. Team leaders brief controllers on the necessity to provide separation assurance where that assurance is not provided on system routes.
  2. Override facilities are to be used.

A cross familiarisation program between the tower and terminal control staff was developed and an education program was devised to ensure both areas have a better understanding of standard system routes.

The Manual of Air Traffic Services (MATS) has been amended to allow controllers to cancel a SID during hours of darkness and instruct crews to depart on runway track using the climb gradient specified in the cancelled SID.
