Our Purpose and Values
Our purpose, as defined in the Air Services Act 1995, is to:
- Provide facilities and services for the safety, regularity and efficiency of air navigation within Australian-administered airspace. This includes providing air traffic services, aviation rescue fire fighting services, aeronautical information, radio navigation and telecommunications services.
- Promote and foster civil aviation in Australia and overseas.
We also operate in accordance with the Air Services Act 1995, the Australian Airspace Policy Statement, the Public Governance, Performance and Accountability Act 2013 and the Minister’s Statement of Expectations.
In simple terms, we exist to connect people with their world safely.
