7-knot Tailwind Safety Case Submitted

We are pleased to advise that Airservices and Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) have submitted a safety case and supporting material to request an increase in the tailwind limit for Simultaneous Opposite Direction Parallel Runway Operations (SODPROPS) at Brisbane Airport, from 5-knots to 7-knots.

If approved by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), the overall volume of time that arrivals and departures will be able to operate simultaneously over the bay will be increased.

This is one of a number of important initiatives currently being pursued to minimise aircraft noise in communities under Brisbane Airport flight paths.
