The Diamond sparkled at the open day


April 28, 2018 by admin

OF the thirty or so people who went out to the airport on Friday morning to have a look and listen to the AAFT aircraft, all probably agreed on one thing, it’s quiet.

The Diamond40, a small aircraft, is built in Germany by a company who predominately builds gliders and according to flight instructor Justin Walker who piloted the plane and did three flyovers of the town on Friday morning; it’s a compact and well balanced aeroplane.

One of the residents who lives close to the runway reported to the councillors and board members on Friday morning that “she didn’t hear a thing” and “didn’t have a problem with the noise.”

Urban planner and independent assessor Keiley Hunter was also at the airport to listen to the varying points of view on the proposed flight school and will next month consider all submissions that will be lodged with the council on the development application.

Ms Hunter was among many at the airport who were taken for a joyride over the district, showing off the low noise level of the plane and part of its planned flight path.

“There is a very definite set of procedures to follow when it comes to reviewing the proposals lodged on the DA and I will look very closely at each one,” she said.

Council also conducted a noise reading survey during the morning.

AAFT director Ian Vanderbeck said he was delighted with the interest shown by residents and believed the day was a great opportunity to talk to people and dispel any of the myths that were causing the greatest concern.
