Flight Paths and Aircraft Noise
The new Sunshine Coast Airport runway means changes to flight paths, necessary to achieve safe and efficient operations for the Airport and the community.
As Australia’s air navigation service provider, Airservices Australia is responsible for airspace management and the design of flight paths.
On 9 October 2019, the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) Office of Airspace Regulation (OAR) provided Airservices Australia with approval for changes to airspace associated with the new runway, based on the design concepts developed by Sunshine Coast Council.
We have compiled a range of tools and resources to help our community better understand what’s involved and what it means for local residents.
While the new runway and flight paths will now see fewer people experience aircraft noise, we recognise it will also mean changes for some people in our community.
