Midnight, OAR has played straight into AsA's hands by this conclusion in the report:

Issue:
An Airline Pilot Representative organisation consider that improving levels of safety at Ayers Rock would require the following; to provide surveillance based IFR / IFR separation services to low level to expedite arrivals and departures. There is currently a lack of separation services between IFR aircraft when surveillance is available.

Finding:
Current Air Navigation Service Provider of IFR/IFR services are based on procedural separation standards. Analysis reveals no recorded instances via ATSB or safety issues. Airservices considers that there is merit in conducting a trial of lowering Class E airspace in the vicinity of Ayers Rock. Lowering Class E airspace could enhance service delivery to IFR aircraft at no additional cost to Airservices. Airspace users (including VFR aircraft) could benefit from fitment of ADS-B avionics through the use of surveillance separation standards and surveillance information services.

Recommendation:
Airservices should investigate the benefits of conducting a trial of lowering Class E airspace in the vicinity of Ayers Rock.

I note VFR could allegedly benefit from having ADS-B so they too could be yabbered-to by the E controller while managing the CTAF. Yeh right.
