The Lismore Airport Business and Aviators Association would like to thank Lismore City Council for the Lismore Airport Forum held at Lismore City Hall on Tuesday, 30 November.

From the results of the LCC Airport Noise Survey, LCC confirmed that airport users have a social licence to conduct business at the airport. The survey showed that 89.5 per cent of respondents supported flying training at the airport, and that only 0.125 per cent of residents were concerned about airport noise.

LCC also agreed to have bimonthly meetings with our association, agreed to provide a breakdown of airport operating costs, including GA versus RPT costs, and to consult our association in regards to the development of the airport masterplan. The Lismore Airport Business and Aviators Association, which represents the vast majority of business and aircraft owners at Lismore airport, are looking forward to working with the new incoming councillors.

Nicholas Reese, Secretary, LAB&AA
