Brisbane Noise Improvement Trials – Quarterly Update

Airservices is pleased to provide the second quarterly update (24 May – 23 August 2022) for the current noise improvement trials in Brisbane.

Extended Simultaneous Opposite Direction Parallel Runway Operations (SODPROPS) trial

We are trialling the extension of SODPROPS operations from 6am to 8am on Saturday and Sunday mornings, when weather conditions allow. When SODPROPS is in use, jets and most propeller-driven (turboprop) aircraft arrive and depart over Moreton Bay. On 7 May 2022, a further extension of SODPROPS was added on Saturday evening from 8pm to 10pm. The results of this extension have been included in this quarterly report.

Restriction on intersection departures from the New Parallel Runway trial

We are trialling restricting intersection departures for all aircraft (jets and turboprops - excluding emergency service aircraft) from the new runway over the city. This means aircraft will commence their take-off roll from the northern end of the new runway.
