CASA EX86_18 — Use of Class A Airspace by Gliders Exemption 2018.pdf
Gliders do not normally use Class A airspace. However, with the approval of Airservices Australia (AA) and CASA, they do so occasionally for high altitude flight in wave soaring areas in Class A airspace. Before pilots conduct high altitude flights, The Gliding Federation of Australia (GFA), or a GFA affiliate, must request clearance from AA. If AA is agreeable, it can make the relevant airspace available to gliders.
The instrument facilitates the activity.
