Be mindful that IFR aircraft track into Jandakot via Canning Bridge to the north and may conflict with outbound traffic to Fremantle.
Departing to the west, track northbound coastal or fly to Rottnest Island via Fremantle Golf Course.
This is the green area just south of the white-roofed Murdoch University.
Maintain the departure altitude of 1000ft until established over the Murdoch University Open Space (defined as an area bounded by Murdoch Drive, Farrington Road, Windelya Road and South Street). Do not climb too early as you may conflict with inbound aircraft arriving via Adventure World at 1500ft.
For noise abatement purposes, climb to 1500ft by the western boundary of the Murdoch University Open Space. Do not climb above 1500ft or you will infringe CTA to the west of Jandakot.

Track to Fremantle Golf Course maintaining 1500ft.
The golf course can be difficult to find – use Fremantle port and Rottnest Island in the background for guidance.
If you intend tracking north, stay over land as aircraft tracking southbound will be over water.
Image shows the view to the north along the coastal corridor, approx 1nm inland. Fremantle Golf Course is at bottom right.
Note Fremantle port (red cranes) and Rottnest Island in the background.
To track from Fremantle Golf Course to Rottnest Island, maintain 1500ft. After passing the Fremantle Golf Course you can climb to not above 2000ft as the Perth CTA 2000ft step extends to 18 DME Perth. Remember at this level in a single-engine aircraft all occupants need to wear a life jacket.
The Rottnest Island CTAF can be busy, so it is important to make all required CTAF calls. As Rottnest is only about 10nm from Fremantle, you need to make that initial inbound call to Rottnest CTAF as you leave the coast.
Looking north from the coastal corridor to Observation City. Note: Mullaloo Point in the background. Caution: traffic joining from the city (right).
Approaching Mullaloo Point you can climb to 2000ft, over the coast, and remain within 2nm of the coast to avoid Pearce restricted airspace. Climb to 4000ft is available north of Lancelin to Cervantes, remaining below R156.
