Safety Action


Local safety action

Airservices Australia's investigation report made five recommendations. As a result, Airservices Australia Southern District issued a request to amend the TAAATS software to:

  1. Show when there is more than one record in the system for an aircraft during the preactive stage.
  2. Amend procedures so a clearance is annotated on a flight progress strip only after it is issued.
They also propose to:
  1. Use team training days to brief staff on the importance of ensuring a comprehensive handover/takeover when combining or decombining control positions.
  2. Reiterate the need for controller vigilance during all operations to ensure that procedural errors are detected and corrected.
  3. Review staff training in procedures to be adopted when an aircraft's track and its flight data record do not couple.
