The Facts about the Gold Coast ILS & New Flight Path

The ILS will not just be used in bad weather, it will be used every day by ALL International Flights (growing in numbers), and can be used by any domestic flight regardless of the weather. In bad weather, there will be aprox 50 to 80 + flights per day using the new flight path and once the new flight path is approved, effectively any pilot on either international or domestic can choose to use this flight path at their discretion.  Air Services Australia specifically comments on the usage of the new flight path in this article.

If Approved, It Is Certain That Residents Under The New Gold Coast Flight Path Will Experience:

- Declines In Property Prices
- Noise and Vibration From Jet AirCraft (Increasing Over Time)
- Decrease In Quality Of Life
- Increased Air Pollution

Here are some useful resources for residents to understand the impact of the new flight path and ILS
