Seaplanes on the lake - discussion paper for comment

12 June 2021

Following a trial flight last December, the National Capital Authority (NCA) has released a discussion paper for public comment concerning possible seaplane operations on Lake Burley Griffin. Operations would involve landing, take-off and taxiing on the Lake, as well as mooring to load and unload passengers.  You can find the NCA discussion paper here. 

YRA has prepared a draft submission raising concerns including the safety of lake users from seaplane operations on the lake. You can read YRA's submission here

If you have any comments on the draft submission, please send them to

Public comments on the NCA discussion paper close on 22 June.
