The approved aerodrome manual forms a part of the submission for certification of a Defence aerodrome.

The aerodrome manual provides supporting information enabling the issue of an aerodrome certification by the Authority, in accordance with DASR 139.80 – Aerodrome Certification.

The aerodrome manual provides communication of the treatments and limitations implemented in risk management for non-compliances identified during the aerodrome certification process.

What We Do

The DASA will review the aerodrome manual on application for aerodrome certification. The DASA must be sufficiently assured that the manual contains all required information and all treatments identified during the certification process to support aerodrome certification decisions.

How Do I Apply?

An application to DASA for an aerodrome certificate should use DASA Form – Application for Aerodrome Certificate. During this review DASA will review the aerodrome manual. See web page Application for Aerodrome Certification to identify how to apply for authority certification for an aerodrome.
