Satellite Laser Ranging Station WA


Recommended Posts

I have been told that the red 'blob' on the attached map near Geraldton is a satellite laser ranging station. Not a lot of info on it that I can find except for this at https://www.ga.gov.au/scientific-topics/positioning-navigation/geodesy/geodetic-techniques/satellite-laser-ranging-slr

 

Does anyone have any references as to how one should transit/avoid this airspace? There doesn't appear to be any associated notes and its not R nor D airspace? Is it NOTAM activated?

 

Even a 'WARNING - Deathstar may operate at any time' note would be helpful.

 

In the meantime, I'm staying away from the red blob..

Do you mean R131A-G? RA3 designation H24. Fly under the steps or around

OK. Looking at my Ozrunways map, I can not see any notation referring to R131A-G. Where would I find that information including step heights PapaFox? Apologies if this is obvious to all except me. I would have thought the R designation would be on the map. PS. NAIPS doesn't give the step info.

Classifications, altitudes and hours are also listed in the table on the ERC-L charts. It's been a long time since I've used Ozrunways to advise how to select the airspace on the map in there

Yep. Shows up on the ERC-L chart. I'll refer to this a bit more often. There is a lot of information out there. Its just a matter of finding where it lurks. Thanks guys.
