  5. NOTAM: SID/STAR Procedure Change

    1. INTRODUCTION In November 2016, ICAO introduced a number of new rules for aircraft cleared via SID and STAR procedures. To align with the international practice, Australia introduced the ICAO SID/STAR procedures in November 2017. 2. Summary A level instruction issued with the words "VIA SID" or "VIA STAR" alerts the pilot that they are flying a procedure with published restrictions that must be complied with. A level instruction without the word "VIA" re-enforces the pilot on a published procedure that there are no remaining published restrictions that the controller expects to be met. If a procedure has remaining published restrictions, level restrictions will only be issued without the word "VIA" if the controller explicitly cancelled them. For Furthur clarification, please see the attached table. 3. AUTHORITY Director Operations 4. CANCELLATION Indefinite
