Feedback required on the draft West Sale Airport Master Plan Update 2017

Council is seeking your feedback on the draft West Sale Airport Master Plan Update 2017.

The draft plan follows a new format that aligns with the Australian Airports Association’s Regional Airports Master Plan template, provides data on aircraft movements and includes plans on the proposed runway extension and Eastern Recreational Aviation Precinct freehold development. Work has also been completed to produce a long range Australian Noise Exposure Forecast (ANEF) that is useful in describing noise.

Extending the runway from 1500m to 1800m will support Air Force pilot training in addition to providing greater opportunities for other types of aircraft to access the airport.­­
