Crane Operations

The protection of the immediate airspace around Tennant Creek Airport is essential to ensure that we maintain a safe operating environment and to provide for future growth of the airport.

The airspace around Tennant Creek Airport is protected under the Airports Act 1996 and the Airports (Protection of Airspace) Regulations 1996.

Crane operations or other obstructions in the vicinity of an airport (approximately 20 kms) have the potential to create air safety hazards and to seriously limit the airport’s operations. For this reason, they are required to be assessed and approved in accordance with the respective regulations and legislation.

It is an offence under Section 183 of the Airports Act 1996 to carry out, without approval, crane operations which intrude into an airport’s protected airspace; it is also an offence under Section 186 of the Act not to give information to the airport operator that is relevant to a proposed activity.

Protected airspace

International standards have been adopted that define the prescribed airspace for Tennant Creek. The Obstacle Limitation Surfaces (OLS) are designed to provide protection for aircraft flying in or out of the airport when the pilot is flying visually (by sight).

Obstacle Limitation Surfaces (OLS) 

The OLS is integral in assessing proposed developments in and around the airport that may intrude on the protected airspace. Enquiries about Tennant Creek Airport’s prescribed airspace can be sent to operationstca@ntairports.com.au.

Assessing and approving crane operations around TCA's airspace

To protect Tennant Creek Airport’s airspace, all crane activities are required by law to be assessed and approved under the Commonwealth Airports (Protection of Airspace) Regulations 1996 before they can be carried out.

Legislation - crane operation around TCA's airspace

As a crane operator, it is an offence under Section 183 of the Airports Act 1996 to carry out, without approval, crane operations which intrude into airport’s protected airspace; it is also an offence not to give information to the Airport of proposed crane activity.
