RA-Aus pilots operating in the Wollongong area

 

February 10, 2015 | members

 

Recently Qantas decided to “gift” one of the remaining 747 aircraft to the Historic Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS) based in Wollongong NSW. The aircraft is anticipated to be flown from Sydney to Wollongong between the 7th and 13th March, with the most likely date being Saturday 7th March, weather permitting. In order for this to occur a Temporary Restricted Area (TRA) will be put in place around Wollongong aerodrome, expected to include an area of 15 nautical mile radius of Wollongong and up to 5000 feet. A copy of the Sydney VNC depicting the proposed TRA is included.

 

As this area potentially includes operations of RA-Aus FTFs and pilots this preliminary advice has been provided so CFIs may advise RA-Aus members affected by the area of the TRA.

 

We will confirm the date of the proposed restricted area as we are advised, but we have been informed that these dates are the most likely date(s) of the operation. Pilots are reminded to check NOTAMs for confirmation of the TRA prior to flight in this area on these proposed dates.

 

It is expected that this landing will become public knowledge and draw significant attention as did the landing of the 747 at Longreach several years ago.

Did they remove the radios already?
