The Office of Airspace Reform has provided advice of significant changes to the GLS approach runway 34 at Melbourne. These changes will impact aircraft transiting the northern portion of Port Phillip Bay.

Specific information has been provided in the following links to a RAPAC document, an AIC, and chart extract, and RAAus encourages all pilots, instructors and students operating in and around this area to carefully review the information and reduction in controlled airspace lower limits. This affects the VFR transit lane around Port Phillip Bay and will become effective 8 November 2018.

CFIs are requested to print and display this information for students, pilots and Instructors at the FTS. Members are requested to consider these changes when conducting flight planning in the area noted.
