Investigation into complaints about the introduction of new flight paths in Hobart

In September 2017 Airservices Australia implemented changes to flight paths for aircraft arriving and departing Hobart Airport. The changes included a Standard Instrument Departure (SID) and a Standard Arrival Route (STAR) for each end of the main runway. The changes altered many residents’ experience of aircraft noise in the broader Hobart area. The effects of the changes, and their impacts on residents, continue to unfold as seasonal variations in Hobart make for different concentrations of runway use and therefore different concentrations of aircraft noise.
