Why can’t circuit training be banned at my local airport?
Circuit training is the first, vital stage of practical pilot training focused on take-offs and landings. It involves the pilot making approaches to the runway, touching down and then applying power to take off again.
This is undertaken in accordance with Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) Regulations which are consistent with international practices. Like all airports, Albury Airport have in place rules regarding when circuit training can be undertaken, as well as the size and location of the circuits, in order to limit the noise impacts on local residents.
