Out Of Hours Applications
All applications are assessed on a case-by-case basis, and we may request a number of conditional mitigation measures to help reduce impacts to surrounding residents. This may include limiting the number of aircraft movements permitted and trimming the aircraft to reduce noise and are subject to safety and weather considerations.
Decisions to approve flights during these hours are not made lightly by Sunshine Coast Airport. These requests may be granted due to an economic benefit to the region or in response to unforeseen circumstances such as weather, diversions or mechanical issues, so approval is often provided at short notice.
Further information on the Noise Abatement Procedure can be found on the Airservices Australia website under Aircraft in Your Neighbourhood.
