Flight path tests

Central Leader - - LETTERS -

Ed’s note: Around 65 peo­ple at­tended the fundrais­ing event. There were more than 61 items up for auc­tion and $6600 was do­nated to the Galz Trust formed to help Amanda Lowry and her fam­ily. Can you do some in­ves­ti­ga­tion into what the air­port and air­lines are do­ing with their ‘‘test­ing’’ of new flight paths over Auck­land to save fuel?

We never used to hear planes fly­ing over but now we do some­times.

It isn’t too loud and prob­a­bly doesn’t breach noise lev­els but com­pared to the very quiet peace­ful at­mos­phere of the sub­urb it is no­tice­able.

I have heard it is worse over cen­tral sub­urbs like Epsom.

I would never con­sider liv­ing in Pa­p­a­toe­toe or Manukau Heights be­cause I knew they were in flight paths.

So how can they be so se­cre­tive about their changes to flight paths and get away with it?

Is there any­thing the pub­lic can do about it? Is this go­ing to be per­ma­nent? What about prop­erty val­ues be­ing af­fected?

Is the air­port go­ing to com­pen­sate peo­ple most af­fected?
