Anzac Day and the wretched planes fly over our shire as if it is just another day to make more $$$. It is not legal to operate a business on Anzac Day while the parade is taking place. At 10.30 while the parade in Mullumbimby walked through town, the small aircraft were up there competing with the military fly over honouring the ANZACS. No respect is the name the game and mining the tourist dollar is their aim.

As to the no responsibility; the hapless Byron Shire Council has not taken up offers from Airservices Australia or the Noise Ombudsman to help establish a Fly Neighbourly Agreement. I am quoting form a letter from Airservices Australia dated 24th April, 2017 as I lodged a complaint with them just last week. This blatant disregard for government agencies to facilitate responsible operations from the airfield suggests corruption in the system and it must be ratted out. The value of our properties are at stake here.

The actual safety compliance of the airfield is also in question. No improvements have been done on the site of the airfield in the last 20 years yet the number of daily flights has increased phenomenally.  Civil Aviation Safety Authority handles matters of safety and low flying air craft. Concerns can be lodged on their website or phone on 1800074737.

Perhaps a double class action suing council for wrecking our cars and devaluing our properties.

Hey if they can have stupid ideas like a helicopter flight school then so can I.
