Light recreational aircraft are flying over residential areas for extended period of times, on a regular basis, becoming a significant noise nuisance to residents.
The circuit is a “track” that circles around the Miramar Peninsula and used for training purposes. While flying the circuit, slow recreational aircraft cruise at low altitude, creating a constant noise background for local residents.
At a time where climate change and wellbeing are central to how we organise our cities, this unnecessary traffic seems out of place. The happiness of local communities should come back on the forefront and this unnecessary traffic banned from highly residential area.
We are asking:
- For the flight path of the circuit to be modified to prevent recreational aircraft to fly above residential areas;
- For a curfew one day of the weekend for this type of traffic;
- For the District Plan to prepare a complete phase out of this type of air traffic.
