Departures to the north-west require careful tracking to remain clear of the Edinburgh military airspace (EDN CTR) north of Parafield and Adelaide CTA.
Advise ATC with your taxi call that you are requesting a ‘St Kilda departure’. Ensure you have read and understood the relevant procedures in ERSA for this departure.
You will need to track via the transit corridor, west of the airfield. Departure altitude is 1000ft. Maintain 1000ft until St Kilda as arriving aircraft from Outer Harbor are at 1500ft.
Caution: helicopters often track inbound via St Kilda at 500ft.
Tracking to Parafield training areas/transit area, you MUST remain south of the Bolivar strobe light and west of St Kilda to remain outside controlled airspace.
A small round lake to the immediate south-east of the Bolivar strobe is often easier to see than the strobe.
CAUTION: The Bolivar strobe light is in close proximity to the Edinburgh military control zone boundary and military aircraft may be encountered in this vicinity.
From the Globe Derby Trotting Track, remain coastal over water to St Kilda to ensure clearance from the Edinburgh restricted area R234.
North of St Kilda, track coastal over land to ensure clearance from inbound traffic over water and from Edinburgh restricted areas to your right.
CAUTION: Pt Wakefield Road is inside the Edinburgh control zone until north of Light Riverand is not a suitable reference for use in remaining clear of R234.
The beginning of the training area, D280, starts a mile past St Kilda, where the Adelaide CLL 2500ft step begins, so you should avoid climbing past 1000ft until abeam the first salt evaporator and over the coastline north of St Kilda.
Track over land to Dublin, following the VFR route marked on your VTC.
To maintain separation with Edinburgh control zone, keep the prominent Buckland Park Weather Radar on your right, as it sits on the edge of R234. Continue climbing to not above 2500ft until past Middle Beach where you can climb to not above 4500ft.
Be aware of possible parachute operations and light aircraft movements at Lower Light ALA.
From Dublin, track as required but be aware of the restricted airspace on the coast, over Port Wakefield firing areas and to the east associated with RAAF Base Edinburgh.
