Project updates

13 September 2018 | Brisbane Airport Helicopter and Light Aircraft Routes from 1 November 2018

Airservices will implement standard flight path routes to and from Brisbane Airport for helicopters and light aircraft from 1 November 2018. This change formalises the routes by publishing them in aeronautical documents. This allows pilots to lodge flight plans for flights on these routes and improves how that information is displayed using the air traffic control radar system, particularly for departing light aircraft. or more information read our fact sheet.

23 February 2018 | UNICOM Training Package

Airservices is pleased to announce the development of a training package for Universal Communication (UNICOM) services as part of our ongoing commitment to promote and foster civil aviation.
The training package was developed to offer potential industry benefit by contributing to enriching the value of information available to non-controlled aerodromes.

The UNICOM traffic information service is provided to enhance pilots’ situational awareness and Airservices are proud to proactively contribute to building industry capability in managing safety, risk and traffic growth at regional aerodromes.

A copy of the training syllabus will be available through Airservices until 30 September 2018. For further information, or a copy of the training syllabus please contact
