Safety Action


Strikemaster operator

Following the occurrence, the operator of the Strikemaster reviewed and amended procedures for flights conducted near Lismore and Williamtown Airports. In the future:

  • pilots will contact the Brisbane Centre controller on taxi to obtain a discrete SSR code (to be retained for the day)
  • pilots will confirm the area of operations for each flight to the Brisbane Center controller to assist in the provision of traffic information to pilots of IFR category flights
  • the Brisbane Centre controller will provide traffic information to the pilot while airborne.

That review included the standardisation of aircraft radio operating procedures.

Brisbane Centre local safety action

Brisbane Centre issued an operational note to controllers advising that the pilots of Strikemaster flights may request a radar information service and controllers are to be prepared to provide a discrete SSR code and traffic information.
