Safety Action


Local safety action

As a result of the investigation the RAAF have made the following changes:

  1. Local Instructions have been amended to introduce a "cap" system of hand-off between approach and sector control. Approach maintains 5,000ft and sector assign descent to 6,000ft, therefore providing separation assurance between the airspace volumes.
  2. The procedure for notating flight strips has been amended to be in accordance with Manual of Air Traffic Services.
  3. The practice of using a single flight progress strip for multiple approaches was ceased.

In addition the following points are noted:

  1. The ADATS has been commissioned at Williamtown.
  2. The possible affect of fatigue on controllers has been referred for further investigation.
