Aviation safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: AirServices Australia
|Date issued:||04 January 2000|
|Safety action status:|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
The Directorate of Flying Safety-ADF and the Bureau of Air Safety Investigation (ATSB) recommends that Airservices Australia in conjunction with the Australian Defence Force and AusSAR investigate methods of improving communication links for SAR operations.
|Date issued:||20 April 2000|
|Response from:||AirServices Australia|
|Action status:||Closed - Accepted|
Airservices considers that the established communication network
and facilities for civil aircraft operations are adequate for the
foreseeable future. This search was an extraordinary event that is
unlikely to be repeated in the near future. For that reason
Airservices does not consider that further expansion of the civil
network or facilities is warranted.
