Safety Action


During the investigation a number of unrelated issues were found. These related to controller operation of CPDLC. Airservices Australia is proposing a national review of those procedures during early 2002.

The investigation also found that the Aeronautical Information Publication did not include CPDLC as a form of communication yet examples were included with only a limited explanation. This was reported to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) for action. CASA subsequently advised that additional material was warranted in the AIP.

On 29 November 2001 AIP amendment A/L 32 was issued. The amendment contained changes to the Communication section that included more detail on CPDLC operation.
