5. MILITARY AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS
5.1 High speed military jet 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.
