The National Aviation Policy Green Paper
Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, & Local Government
The sixteen priority areas identified by Government in the Green Paper are general goals that the RAAA supports. However, the RAAA proposes that they be expanded to include a focus on increased aviation research and development, as well as support for growth in aviation manufacturing capability. It is important that the construction of Australia's first national aviation policy is not simply a mapping exercise or a statement of high level intent but a serious attempt to chart a course for the future of aviation. It is also important to co-opt those who need to participate to achieve the policy's objectives.
