4.       PROCEDURE DETAILS

4.1   ML-ASP

This sector will assume responsibility of the Class C and G in the predefined AS sector. All approach clearances (excluding aircraft already in the YBAS CTR, Class D) will be given by this sector.

4.2   ML-ASW

This sector will be responsible for the western Class A airspace of the ASP sector, as defined in the green shaded are of figure 1 below.

4.3  ML-ASE.

This sector will be responsible for the eastern Class A airspace of the ASP sector, as defined in the red shaded area of figure 1 below.

4.4   AS_TWR.

This sector will assume responsibility of the Alice Springs CTR, Class D airspace. The use of radar for this sector is strictly for situation awareness only and may not be used to provide a separation standard. This sector will coordinate any non-auto-release departures into CTA with an appropriate “NEXT” call, and in doing so, obtain and requirements or delays for the departing aircraft. Auto-release SIDS will be co-ordinated at the time of the event between AS_TWR, AS_GND and ML-ASP_CTR. Please refer to the MATS for other coordination requirements.

4.5   AS_GND.

This sector will assume responsibility of the YBAS manoeuvring areas as shown in figure 2. This sector will also issue airways clearances to any departures from YBAS but must coordinate with ASP via a “TAXI” if the aircraft is not departing via an auto-release SID into CTA. Auto-release SIDS will be co-ordinated at the time of the event between AS_TWR, AS_GND and ML-ASP_CTR. Please refer to the MATS for other coordination requirements.
