    Australia‘s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) CEO and director of aviation safety Shane Carmody reported (26-Sep-2017) the results of consultation on radio frequency use in low level uncontrolled airspace have been released, showing a majority support using the MULTICOM frequency 126.7 at low levels in Class G airspace. Nearly 500 submissions were made to the discussion paper, which canvassed views on using the MULTICOM or designated Area VHF frequencies. CASA will make a policy decision on the low level frequency use issue before the end of 2017. There will be additional consultation and a comprehensive education program for pilots following the decision. [more – original PR]
