Safety Action

Summary

Local safety action

As at 24 June 2002, Airservices Australia had installed a tower situational awareness display (TSAD) in the equipment room in the Tamworth control tower complex so that appropriate maps can be loaded and system performance monitored. Airservices Australia expects to install the TSAD in the Tamworth control tower cabin in September 2002. Although the TSAD is not used to apply separation standards between aircraft, it should (when operational) assist controllers with situational awareness in this complex air traffic environment.

In an effort to control training in Tamworth controlled airspace, the Tamworth ERSA entry, effective 13 June 2002, now requires pilots planning instrument training at Tamworth, during tower hours, to obtain approval from Tamworth ATC prior to submission of the flight plan.
