But then again on the other side of the coin as we are seeing with the Nov30 NSW Mil airspace changes at other times they can change everything pretty much at will.

So who would know.
Slight thread drift but Digital Towers for Ballina, Canberra, Hamilton Island and Western Sydney.

The press release from this week indicates they've now pushed these implementations back twice already:

CTA: November 2023 > November 2024 > June 2025
TWR: June 2024 > June 2025 > November 2025
From the CASA press release:
CASA has issued a direction to establish controlled airspace from 2025 and will work closely with Airservices to support airspace design.

The first phase will see the airspace reclassified and an approach control service provided by Airservices by 12 June 2025.

The second phase will see the establishment of a new aerodrome control service by Airservices no later than 27 November 2025.
Procedural or radar approach service? Additional surveillance? Primary radar? Secondary radar? ADSB only? VFR lanes?

Different approach (sorry) to Hobart, Launceston, Mackay and Rockhampton where an approach control service was added after the aerodrome control service had been operating for 60 or 70 years.

Here we go, yabbering on the ATC "approach" freq on one radio while trying to sort out the VFR sequence on the CTAF on the other. Put the tower in first! And put in a full-length parallel taxiway.

From Airservices and CASA OAR representatives at AvSafety events in Ballina and Murwillumbah this week:

CTA Class D
CTR Class D

Approach likely to be handled by the controllers who already look after Gold Coast approach from BN CEN.

Is this the same Brisbane/Cooly app service that is already chronically understaffed and can't even open its CASA mandated hours? Good luck with that

Absolute **** Show. Get some new management. Especially in resource planning

A search of sunnySA's 'AsA TIBA/TRA/OPR Restrictions' thread shows how often the YBNA SFIS is NOTAMed unavailable. If Airservices can't manage to staff a reliable SFIS for YBNA, any Airservices and OAR statements about any new YBNA CTA and CTR are balloon juice.
