Port Augusta Renewable Energy Project involves the construction of up to 50 wind turbines in the vicinity of Stirling North/ Flinders Field (YFFD), an aircraft landing area located to the east of Port Augusta township and approximately 7 nm east of Port Augusta Airport (YPAG).

Aviation Projects has assisted the aerodrome operator to apply for a four letter ICAO designator (YFFD), be approved as an aeronautical data originator (ADO) and have details of the aerodrome published as a shaded entry in En Route Supplement Australia (ERSA) - scheduled for the 25 March 2021 edition.

Non-standard circuit directions are currently conducted, and some changes to circuit operations are recommended for certain operations and runways to avoid
the wind farm.

CASA approval is required to publish non-standard circuit directions in ERSA.

Consultation on the proposal is underway via the Aviation State Engagement Forum - click here to find out more.
