Fly Friendly

 

Fly Friendly Program

Parafield Airport Limited encourages its aviation tenants to adopt a "Fly Friendly Program".  This program is voluntarily entered into by aviation tenants in order to minimise the impact of aircraft operations on the surrounding community.
 

Operating Procedures:

 
When safe to do so and/or under direction of Air Traffic Control - the main objectives of the Fly Friendly program are:
  • Climb to operating height as soon as possible
  • Maintain operating height
  • Reduce engine power as soon as possible
  • Follow the promulgated flight paths
  • Avoid residential areas if and where practicable
  • Do not fly wide circuits. Keep as narrow as possible
  • Utlise low powered descent approaches from training area (reduce noise)

Circuit Operating Hours:

  • Monday to Friday         7am to 11pm
    During weekdays it has been agreed that circuit training will, where possible, cease by 10pm.  However this is subject to operational requirements.
  • Saturday                        7am to 9pm
  • Sunday                          8.30am to 9pm
    Implemented mid 2011, previously 8am.
