Managing aircraft noise
We need to cater for the changing nature of aircraft operations, air traffic growth, airport expansion and advances in aviation technology, while keeping aviation safety as our first priority.
This requires a careful balance of ensuring safety, operational efficiency, protecting the environment and minimising the effects of aviation noise on the community, wherever practicable.
We hear you
Making a complaint
We manage complaints and enquiries about aircraft noise and operations through our Noise Complaints and Information Service (NCIS). NCIS is the Australian aviation industry’s main interface on aircraft noise and related issues for the community.
We provide information about airport operations, including flight paths, movements, runways, aircraft noise monitoring, investigations and complaints.
Monitoring and reporting
Aircraft noise monitoring
We undertake long term aircraft noise monitoring at major Australian airports through the world’s largest, most geographically spread system of its type. We also undertake and report on short term aircraft noise monitoring.
