Aviation safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Civil Aviation Safety Authority
|Date issued:||15 January 2004|
|Safety action status:|
The ATSB recommends that the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, in consultation with Airservices Australia and the NAS Implementation Group, review NAS procedures and communications requirements for operations in Class E airspace, with particular emphasis on air transport operations during climb and descent in non-radar airspace, with a view to enhancing situational awareness of pilots operating in that airspace. The review should include examination of, and where necessary revision and updating of, education, training and chart frequency material.

CASA agrees with this recommendation. A review of Stage 2b of
the NAS has commenced and information is being obtained from all
stakeholders and analysed by the Authority.
