Aviation safety issues and actions
Safety Advisory Notice issued to: Department of Defence
|Date issued:||26 June 2006|
|Safety action status:||Closed|
|Background:||Why this Safety Advisory Notice was developed|
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau suggests that the Department of Defence distributes this report widely among controllers so that supervisors are aware that intervention in separation and sequencing at the tactical level has the potential to adversely affect the situational awareness of the controllers under their supervision. Further, they must be prepared to take control of a situation if necessary until the controller is able to safely resume responsibility for separation.
