If departing upwind on RWY 29, climb to 1000ft and maintain runway heading until clear of the Bankstown control zone. If departing downwind on RWY 11, climb to 1500ft and maintain the downwind heading until clear of the Bankstown CTR.
You will be clear of the Bankstown CTR when you have passed the Liverpool to Parramatta railway line. Commence your climb to not above 2500ft and continue tracking to the west. Keep well clear of inbound traffic and avoid the VFR approach point at Prospect Reservoir.
Keep a good lookout as you transit the Bankstown/Camden training area and maintain a listening watch on Sydney Centre, 124.55 or 125.8.
Your maximum altitude will be 2500ft until you reach the CTA step at 20 DME Sydney. West of this step, you can climb to 4500ft, but keep a good lookout for randomly manoeuvring aircraft in the Bankstown/Camden training area.
Alt: Not above 4500ft
West of Glenbrook, the lower limit of the control area step is 7500ft, although you should generally limit your altitude to 6500ft in accordance with the ‘semi-circular rule’ listed in the AIP table of cruising levels.
Richmond military control zone, R469 (surface to 4500ft), R494 (above 4500ft) and class C airspace lie to the north of your track to Katoomba and you should plan to use towns such as Penrith, Glenbrook, Springwood and Katoomba as aids to track keeping and to avoid inadvertently penetrating controlled airspace.
When tracking over Katoomba, be aware of the ‘Fly Neighbourly’ procedures noted in ERSA, for flights in the Blue Mountains area. Look out for other traffic around Katoomba aerodrome.
