Parafield Airport has many people who regulary complain about the horrendous noise caused by trainee pilots based at Parafield Airport. Noise is lower once the planes have taken off and entered the circuit path but several areas are unliveable. Noise measure ments of up to 100 decibels have been recorded. Some areas should be provided with noise insulation especially as the Airport plans to double flight movements. It is an awful place to live due to noise. It is a crazy situation becuase many og the trainee pilots come from China, India and other countries. Simple solution. Move this flight training away from our homes ASAP.
Parafield is primarily a training airport for light aircraft, with a few vintage planes using it as a base for tours also. It is used nearly every day, with quite constant activity (take off and landing practice, or touch and go's) but the aircraft are so small that the noise isn't terribly intrusive.
