From Thursday 22 August 2013, Airservices Australia will commence a 12-month trial of a modified flight path for runway 03 arrivals approaching from the north, in an effort to reduce aircraft noise for residents in the vicinity of Roleystone.
The trial follows a report into aircraft noise at Perth, published by the Aircraft Noise Ombudsman.
The flight path will be moved eastwards, away from Bickley, Byford, Carmel, Martin and Roleystone to mostly rural areas near Karragullen, Pickering Brook and Bickley East.
Airservices is consulting with the local communities prior to the starting the trial. Aircraft noise will be monitored in the affected areas, and Airservices will formally evaluate the trial after 12 months.
