On the 11th June 2021, AOPA Australia with the support of the RA Aus, SAAA and ASAC submitted an open letter to the NSW Minister for Planning, The Hon Rob Stokes, calling on him to intervene in the recent announcement regarding Tallawarra B. We are now calling on all aviation industry participants and supporters to lend a hand in this important process, by making a personal submission to the NSW Government.
Collectively we think it important that a properly conducted, open and transparent third party review of the plume be conducted, led by CASA, and involving technical representatives from the aviation community.
The key to seeing this done prior to any work actually happening on construction of the facility, is via Minister Stokes.
You can help by personally contacting Minister Stokes and expressing your personal concern in your own words via this link:

The process is very straight forward. You don’t need to upload any documents. You do wish to receive a reply.
Everybody can help by letting Minister Stokes know that we need to be assured that this project is safe for us. We support CASA in their suggestion that they conduct an independent review led by CASA.
We add our voices requesting that review be open and transparent, and that it has appropriate technical representation from AOPA, RA Aus, SAAA and ASAC.
Should CASA determine the project to be safe through such a process, we will then work constructively with the implementation to ensure the outcome is a win-win for all.
