Update on Noise Abatement Procedure Trial
Thank you for your patience regarding the outcome of the Noise Abatement Procedure trial. We are currently finalising our analysis using our Flight Path Design Principles. Our primary focus is on safety, however we are also considering noise impacts, locations of community facilities and other noise sensitive sites, efficiency, environmental and operational elements. We expect to have a resolution on this issue by 30 June 2023 and will update this page with the outcome. We will be looking to engage with the community on this topic through face to face discussions. Locations and dates will be advised shortly.
Given the even split in community response to this proposal, it is extremely important that Airservices is able to demonstrate a sound assessment process behind any decision we make. As such, this is taking more time than we had anticipated. We recognise the community will want to see the detail of our assessment and are in the process of documenting this so it is clear on what basis we have formed our views.
