Plan your easterly arrival via Mount Dale, a good positive fix which will help you to remain OCTA. You can then join the VFR route to Jandakot via Canning Dam and Six South. Once again, it is essential to plan your descent well in advance to stay clear of the 4500ft and 3500ft CTA steps.
If you are having difficulty pinpointing your exact position in relation to the CTA steps and boundaries due to haze or setting sun, ask Perth Centre on 135.25 for position information. A VCA in this area could cause a real problem, as the majority of heavy jet airline traffic tracks into Perth from the east.

Note the radio tower and gravel car park on the top of Mount Dale. From here, take up a track of 262° towards Canning Dam. It is important to note that this is a two-way route, so keep a good lookout for opposite direction traffic.
S 32 09.3 E 116 07.5
From Canning Dam, track inbound towards the VFR approach point of Six South.
When you cross the Darling escarpment, descend to 1500ft, the inbound altitude for arrivals to Jandakot.
Six South is actually an arc of airspace, rather than a pinpoint position. See its location on the VTC, just a short distance to the south of Forrestdale Lake. Note that the lake generally dries out during summer.
Keep a good lookout, as this area can be a busy inbound point for arrivals from the east and south.
After listening to the Jandakot ATIS on 120.9 or NDB 281, contact Jandakot Tower 118.1 at Six South with your inbound call.
Note: Once you have established two-way communication with the tower, this is your implied clearance into the class D control zone. Expect ATC to issue you with a requirement to maintain 1500ft.
If radio congestion precludes this call at Six South from being made, you do not have an airways clearance and must not enter the control zone.
When able, contact the tower again once you are re-established at the inbound approach point of Six South.
Pilot: ‘Jandakot Tower, (callsign), (type), Six South 1500ft, received (ATIS), inbound’
ATC: ‘(callsign), Jandakot Tower, [instruction]’
If given instructions from Jandakot Tower - Pilot: ‘(Read back instructions), (callsign)’
You are required to report again at Forrestdale Lake.
If radio congestion precludes this call at Forrestdale Lake from being made, you may proceed into the zone, but contact tower as soon as possible for further instructions.
Remember, if ATC has issued you with a requirement to maintain 1500ft, you may not descend until you have been given a separate clearance to do so.
The 2000ft lower limit step of the Perth CTA overlies this area and must be strictly observed as Perth ATC may be vectoring aircraft for Perth Runway 03 arrivals.
