2.1 For the duration of the NOTAM, activity is anticipated for the entire time period as set out in 1.2.

2.2 The following Temporary Modified Restricted and AAR, AEW&C airspace are established at Williamtown (YWLM),
and will be activated by NOTAM:

a. YWLM/R580
CONDITIONAL STATUS: RA2 (Transit)
MILITARY FLYING
LATERAL LIMITS: Limits are Setout by airspace outline in Appendix
VERTICAL LIMITS: 4500 – F125
HOURS OF ACTIVITY: NOTAM
CONTROLLING AUTHORITY: VATPAC

b. YWLM/R583A
CONDITIONAL STATUS: RA2 (Transit)
MILITARY FLYING
LATERAL LIMITS: Limits are Setout by airspace outline in Appendix
VERTICAL LIMITS: SFC – F125
HOURS OF ACTIVITY: NOTAM

c. YWLM/R574
CONDITIONAL STATUS: RA3 (Primary)
MILITARY FLYING
LATERAL LIMITS: Limits are Setout by airspace outline in Appendix
VERTICAL LIMITS: SFC – F600

3. Airspace Activation Timing:

3.1 Training Sorties are planned to take place as set out in 1.2 of this NOTAM

4. Flight Planning and Limitations:

4.1 All waypoints inside exercise lateral boundaries will be available above FL355 during the exercise.

4.2 Upper limits are set out in section 2.0 of this NOTAM

5. Military Aircraft Operations:

5.1 High speed military jet & turboprop aircraft will be on random tracks without communications within all exercise
airspace. Traffic information will not be provided to or about exercise aircraft operating in exercise area. (Intentions
may be handed to ATC by the flight lead on a flight by flight basis)

5.2 Aircraft operating out of Williamtown (YWLM) will operate on the appropriate CTAF channels when ATC is not
online.

5.3 When outside CTAF areas, military aircraft will tune UNICOM until established within active restricted airspace.
Upon entering active restricted airspace military aircraft will be virtually NOCOM. (See para 5.4)

5.4 Regardless of the phase of flight, military aircraft will endeavour to monitor UNICOM text (122.800) for mutual
separation when ATC is offline.

5.5 The below list outlines the civil frequencies that military aircraft will operate on when outside of restricted
airspace.

Location Frequency
YWLM TWR: 118.30
YWLM APP: 130.350
All Other (UNICOM)

6. Priorities:

6.1 During exercise activity periods, access to the exercise airspace may not be available due to high density/high
energy military operations.

6.2 Every endeavour will be made to adjust exercise activities and minimize delays to facilitate transit of civil aircraft.

7. Cancellation:

7.1 This NOTAM will cancel by formal notification from RAAFv excecutive
