CASA consultation on low level radio frequency shows preference for MULTICOM frequency

28 September, 2017

Australia's Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) CEO and director of aviation safety Shane Carmody reported (26-Sep-2017) the results of consultation on radio frequency use in low level uncontrolled airspace have been released, showing a majority support using the MULTICOM frequency 126.7 at low levels in Class G airspace. Nearly 500 submissions were made to the discussion paper, which canvassed views on using the MULTICOM or designated Area VHF frequencies. CASA will make a policy decision on the low level frequency use issue before the end of 2017. There will be additional consultation and a comprehensive education program for pilots following the decision. [more - original PR]
