Local safety action

As a result of this investigation, Airservices Australia issued a Terminal Operations - Request for Change (RFC). The RFC requested that the following be inserted in Hamilton Island Local Instructions, within the section titled Lateral Separation as follows:

"Lateral Separation.
Parachuting Operations at Shute Harbour (YSHR)

Lateral separation exists between an aircraft cleared on the HM RWY 14 VOR/DME IAL and a PJE aircraft up to A100 with a clearance to: "OPERATE OVER THE MAINLAND WEST OF PIONEER POINT AND SHUTEHAVEN".

The change was implemented on 23 September 1999.
