Australia’s air traffic management provider Airservices and the Australian Airports Association have jointly developed a website aimed at better educating the broader community on aircraft noise issues.
The website, aircraftnoise.com.au, was launched at Airservices’ Waypoint industry conference in Canberra on Wednesday by Airservices CEO Margaret Staib.
“As air traffic levels continue to increase, managing noise is increasingly challenging. The entire aviation industry recognises the need to work together to meet this challenge, to safeguard the future viability of aviation operations,” the website states. “The aviation industry understands the noise impact of its activities on residents who live near airports.It is committed to taking action to minimise noise, even as the number of flights continue to increase. This commitment includes ways to communicate better with the public about noise from aircraft operations.”
Pages on the site discuss aircraft noise, its monitoring and measuring, details what entities have what responsibilities for aircraft noise management, details noise abatement and flghtpaths at major Australian Airports, and provides directions on where and how to make complaints about airport noise.
