Navaid decommissioning from 26 May 2016

Posted on May 17 2016

On 26 May, about half of Australia's ground based navaids (NDB, VOR, DME) will be decommissioned. Navaids being turned off include Archerfield NDB, Goondiwindi NDB, Jacobs Well VOR, Kilcoy NDB, Laravale VOR, and Maleny VOR. The Sunshine Coast VOR is due to be turned off in 2017. Some of the navaids are being replaced by new GPS waypoints.

Please update your charts and ERSA on 26 May (including electronic versions such as Ozrunways) and check the NOTAMS!

A list of the decommissioned navaids can be found here.
