Pilots of Recreational Aircraft intending to visit Airshow 2009 are required to register, irrespective of whether they seek to use either Avalon Main or Avalon East.

Controlled Airspace
The Avalon airspace is soon to be classified Class C airspace with associated ATC procedures.  For Airshow 2009 it is expected that the airspace will also be classified as Restricted.

CAO 95.55
Recreational Aircraft may, subject to CAO 95.55 operate in controlled airspace, but only under specific conditions.

Subject to final confirmation (expected late 2008), CASA has advised that approval may be given to permit ultralight flight in to Avalon controlled airspace for the purpose of Airshow 2009, provided certain conditions are met including:

  • Specific procedures are developed to process ultralight movements;
  • Ultralight movements are limited to specific times on nominated days, with arrivals early morning and departures late afternoon to avoid periods of peak traffic
  • Requests for Recreational Aircraft pilots to be granted permission to operate are to be lodged with the Airshow organizers no later than 10 February 2009

The Airshow organizers will provide a consolidated list of all intending ultralight operations to CASA to obtain a “General Approval” for participants. Pilot and aircraft information required by CASA to consider an approval includes the following (which is to be provided separately to the Airshow organizers when requested to do so):

  • Pilots name
  • Details of licenses held
  • Aircraft type and registration markings
  • Aircraft equipment fit – radio/transponder
  • Intended arrival and departure dates and times

Confirmation of requirements following final approval by CASA will be advised as soon as possible – through update of this segment.
