FLIGHT PATH FORUM MISSION

Flight Path Forum (FPF) is a not-for profit community focused organisation run by volunteers. We believe that community consultation, risk and environmental assessments for areas affected by the proposed flight path changes associated with the commissioning of runway 13/31 at the Sunshine Coast Airport were inadequate and have left affected communities uninformed and impacts without proper assessment.

FPF is working actively with the following stakeholders to address these issues on behalf of our members and affiliated groups:

  • Airservices Australia
  • Aircraft Noise Ombudsman
  • Sunshine Coast Council
  • Sunshine Coast Airport
  • Noosa Council
  • Federal Members for Wide Bay & Fairfax
  • State Members for Noosa & Ninderry
  • Queensland Coordinator General (QCG)
  • Department of Environment and Energy
  • Civil Aviation Authority (CASA)
  • Office of Airspace Regulation (OAR)

FPF activities include lobbying of stakeholders via submissions, correspondence and meetings, researching assessment processes and systems, keeping members updated on activities and progress via Facebook and direct email updates and providing an information resource via our website. The FPF committee holds regular meetings to adopt and progress our mission to understand the inadequacy of the process, identify research issues, formulating strategies for tracing accountability, obtaining a review of assessment processes by stakeholders and working towards changing the flight paths away from northern Sunshine Coast Communities.

Flight Path Forum Inc. was formed to represent residents across both Noosa and Sunshine Coast council areas, who are affected by proposed flights paths for runway 13/31 of the Sunshine Coast Airport.  Community Groups working collaboratively with Flight Path Forum on behalf of their members include:
