Hello SAFA Members.
As we advised via email on February 1, Airservices Australia (Airservices) has put forward for comment proposed changes to Class E airspace. In broad terms, the proposal outlines a plan to reduce the current Class E airspace lower limit of 8500’ AMSL from Cairns to Melbourne, to 1500’ AGL.
SAFA does not support this proposal.
SAFA has been meeting with other sport aviation organisations to discuss the shared impact of this proposal on our respective members. We would like to reassure members of the continued engagement we are undertaking to mitigate this risk to our continued safe operations.
Below is a link to the SAFA Operations Team submission to Airservices regarding this proposal.
