Fly Neighbourly Policy

Pilots and aircraft operating at Caloundra Aerodrome must comply with regulations and procedures stipulated by Airservices Australia and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). This includes the En Route Supplement Australia (ERSA) and the Visual Pilot Guide. These requirements include noise reduction procedures.

Although the aerodrome was in place before most residents moved to the area, Caloundra Aerodrome has developed and implemented a Fly Neighbourly Policy[16KB]

The Fly Neighbourly Policy ensures pilots and aviation businesses consider operational noise impacts and how they can minimise noise in and around the aerodrome.
