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
