Safety Check At Sunshine Coast Aerodrome

Published:

Important flight path safety checks are being carried out at the Sunshine Coast aerodrome next week.

The checks are being conducted by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority to make sure instrument procedure flight paths at the aerodromes operate safely.

The checks of new approach and departure procedures at the Sunshine Coast aerodrome are being carried out on Tuesday 10 March.

A twin-engine Cessna Conquest aircraft will be used to carry out the safety checks within an area up to 35 kilometres from the aerodromes.

Low-level flying is an essential part of the safety exercise, with the aircraft down as low as several hundred feet at times.

Local residents may notice an uncommon flying pattern, but this is to make sure obstacles are accurately marked on charts and no new obstacles exist.  Obstacles can be towers, trees, masts or buildings that can be a danger to aircraft.

If poor weather or other factors do not allow the safety checks to go ahead on the planned day they will be carried out as soon as possible.  The Sunshine Coast checks are scheduled for the morning of 10 March.

CASA has contracted the operation of the special check flights to Corporate Air, one of Australia's largest and longest established aviation services providers.
