New Noise Improvement Trial
As part of our commitment to explore all opportunities to minimise noise impacts in Brisbane, Airservices has been working with QantasLink on a new trial for QantasLink Dash 8 Q400 turboprop aircraft to use an existing Required Navigation Performance – Authorisation Required (RNP-AR) flight path over Moreton Bay. This flight path will be used for arrivals to runway 19L (legacy runway) and aims to reduce the impact of aircraft operations on North Stradbroke Island and Moreton Island. A fact sheet explaining the trial can be viewed here.
The trial will commence on 5 September 2022 and will run for 12 months. Findings will be provided in quarterly reviews published on this site.
Provide your feedback
We welcome community feedback on the trial. To provide feedback please use our online form at any time during the 12 month trial.
We will consider all feedback as part of the quarterly review. We are particularly interested in any change to aircraft noise or operations that communities on North Stradbroke Island and Moreton Island notice during this trial.
If you have specific questions or complaints about aircraft operations, please contact our Noise Complaints and Information Service (NCIS).
