1 Safety & nvironment Safety Programs & Promotions p or e 28 May 2010 Avalon Class Airspace Procedures On 3 June 2010 Avalon airspace, under direction from CASA, will change from a Class C Control Zone (CTR) to a Class D Control Zone. At the same time parts of the surrounding airspace will become Class airspace. The new airspace, as depicted on the Visual Terminal Chart (VTC), is shown below in Figure 1. The details for operating in the Avalon Class airspace are located in NOTAM and in AIP SUP (30/10), which can be found on the Airservices Australia website Prior to operating in Avalon Class D and airspace ensure you have familiarised yourself with the applicable procedures. The purpose of this Safety Bulletin is to expand on what this means to pilots when operating around Avalon. This Safety Bulletin does not provide advice on the change in procedures from a Class C CTR to Class D CTR. Please visit for more information. Figure 1: Avalon Airspace from 3 June (Source: Melbourne VTC)

2 Airspace and Procedures during Avalon Tower Hours During Avalon Tower hours the airspace configuration is as depicted in Figure 1. A crosssection of the airspace is shown below in Figure 2. G FL180 C LL 4500 C C LL SFC-1500 G SFC-2500 D D SFC-2500 G SFC-2500 SFC DM AV 8NM AV ARP 8NM AV ARP 12 DM AV Geelong AV Melbourne Figure 2: Cross-section of the Avalon airspace looking west through the 000/180 VOR radials. (Not to scale: terrain not shown.) Air Traffic Services will be provided in the Class D CTR and overlying Class CTA by Avalon Tower on VHF frequency MHz. Avalon Tower is not able to provide radar-based traffic information or collisionavoidance advice. CASA has declared the Avalon Class CTA a Broadcast Area until a dedicated radar directed traffic information service is available. This is expected to be available in November The Broadcast Area has been established to ensure that all traffic within the Class CTA is known to Avalon Tower, so that they can provide appropriate traffic information to IFR aircraft. 2

3 VFR Procedures The pilot of a VFR aircraft intending to enter the Avalon Class CTA Broadcast Area, must broadcast intentions to Avalon tower prior to entry. For example: Avalon Tower, Cessna 172, Alpha Bravo Charlie, Werribee Racecourse tracking to the Vehicle Testing Ground, maintaining 2,500. The Tower will acknowledge this broadcast, for example: Alpha Bravo Charlie, Avalon Tower. Note: This is not a clearance, as VFR aircraft do not require a clearance to operate in Class airspace. When flying in the Class CTA you must monitor at all times in accordance with AIP, and in order to maintain two-way communications with ATC. If your level or track changes from what you originally notified, inform Avalon Tower as soon as possible of your revised intentions, e.g.: Avalon Tower, Cessna 172, Alpha Bravo Charlie, 1 mile east of the Vehicle Testing Ground, now tracking direct Leopold, on climb to 3,500. If necessary, you may also be subject to ATC instructions to ensure safe operations. For example: Alpha Bravo Charlie, traffic is an A320 on a 12 mile final for Runway 18, remain one mile east of the centreline until you have the traffic in sight. VMC Criteria With four different classes of airspace in close proximity in the Avalon region it is important to consider the VMC criteria for each. The VMC criteria for each (below 10,000ft) are as follows: 3

4 Airspace Aircraft Height Flight VIS Distance from cloud horizontal/vertical Additional Conditions Class C Aeroplanes, helicopters and balloons Below 10,000ft AMSL 1,500M horizontal 1,000FT vertical ATC may permit operations in weather conditions that do not meet this criteria (Special VFR) Class D Aeroplanes helicopters and balloons Within Class D 600M horizontal 1,000FT above 500FT below ATC may permit operations in weather conditions that do not meet these criteria (Special VFR). Class Aeroplanes, helicopters and balloons Below 10,000 FT AMSL 1,500M horizontal 1,000FT vertical Special VFR is not Available in Class Below 10,000 FT AMSL 1,500M horizontal 1,000FT vertical Class G Aeroplanes At or Below 3,000 FT AMSL or 1,000 FT AGL whichever is the higher Clear of Cloud and in sight of ground or water Carriage and use of radio is required when operating to these conditions for communication on the appropriate frequency. These four classes of airspace are all in close proximity in the Avalon area. With differing VMC minima, it is important to ensure that VMC will be maintained throughout your planned flight. Note in particular that it may be possible to operate in VMC in Class G airspace but not in the adjoining Class airspace due to increased lateral or vertical distance required from cloud. IFR Routes If you are planning to operate VFR in the Avalon Class CTA, try to familiarise yourself with the published IFR routes, so they can be avoided where possible, as required by AIP. The Departure and Approach Procedures (DAP) for Avalon can be found on the Airservices Australia website: 4

5 IFR holding patterns contained within or in proximity to the Avalon CTA include: TMPL (approx 10nm North) AVVN (approx 14nm north) Avalon VOR AVVSB (approx 10nm South) The lowest holding altitude in IMC for all patterns is 3000ft, except AVVN which is 3700ft. The following are busy published IFR routes to/from Avalon: Route Track out from Avalon Track in to Avalon W190 Avalon-Melbourne W635 Avalon-Moorabbin W291 Avalon-Yarrowee W15 Avalon-TMPL IFR aircraft also frequently track along the following un-published routes: Route Track out from Avalon Track in to Avalon Avalon-Cowes Avalon-Portland Remember: Where possible try to avoid published IFR routes and holding patterns. Transponder Operation Make sure your transponder is on and set to Mode C (ALT). This allows the safety-net defence of Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System (TCAS) in larger aircraft to generate Traffic Advisories (TA) and Resolution Advisories (RA). You must operate your transponder in accordance with AIP while flying in the Class CTA. That is: All aircraft, except aircraft operating to the VFR which are not fitted with an engine driven electrical system capable of continuously powering a transponder, must be fitted with a serviceable Mode A and Mode C, or Mode S, SSR transponder when operating in Class airspace. (AIP GN ) Pilots of aircraft fitted with a serviceable Mode 3A transponder must activate the transponder at all times during flight, and if the transponder is Mode 3C capable, that mode must also be operated continuously. (AIP NR ) Squawk 1200 when flying in the Class CTA VFR, unless Avalon Tower instructs you to squawk a different code on entry into the Class CTA. 5

6 Squawk 3000 if you are flying into the Class D CTR as a civil VFR flight. Outside Tower Hours Outside Tower hours the Avalon Class D CTR and Class CTA will be reclassified as Class G airspace. The 3 June RSA entry for Avalon (FAC A-33 AIRSPAC MANAGMNT OUTSID TWR HR) is not correct. The AIP SUP provides the accurate information relating to Avalon Airspace operations. Outside Tower hours a CTAF-AFRU is established on MHz. IFR Operations ATC will separate IFR aircraft from other IFR aircraft in Classes C, D and airspace. In Classes D and airspace, ATC will provide IFR aircraft with traffic information on VFR aircraft. Separation from these aircraft is a pilot responsibility. As IFR aircraft operate on a clearance within Classes C, D and airspace, deviation from track or level to assure separation from VFR traffic requires an amended clearance from ATC except when responding to a TCAS Resolution Advisory or in an emergency. This includes levelling-off at a level other than that assigned or reversing sense during a level change (e.g. climbing when cleared on descent). Limited time and space available in the Avalon area means that requests for amended clearances should be made in sufficient time to permit ATC to carry out necessary coordination or de-confliction with other IFR traffic. Importance of a good lookout In the Avalon Class CTA you will be sharing the airspace with scheduled public transport jet traffic, among others. Whether operating IFR or VFR in the Avalon Class airspace, you need to: Maintain a listening watch on for any conflicting traffic, and take action as appropriate to avoid the conflict. Maintain a good lookout to see and avoid conflicting traffic in VMC. If VFR, keep in mind that this can be difficult with jet traffic due to their high speed, therefore it is vital to be listening on Make sure your transponder is on and set to Mode C to allow TCAS to function. Comply with any ATC instructions. Instructions are given to ensure the safety of both you and other traffic. This Safety Bulletin should be read in conjunction with AIP SUP (30/10), which will be cancelled at UTC. 6
