We are planning to begin our annual airfield maintenance this
weekend (February 10.)
From Sunday night, between 9pm and 5am and weather permitting,
we will begin necessary maintenance work on the main runway.
The work can only take place when ideal weather conditions occur
and so allow planes to use the cross wind (nor'west/southeast)
As a general rule, if there is a wind blowing, aircraft must
land and take off into wind. There may therefore be occasions when
they will have to fly over this part of the city.
We are working with Airways Corporation, the company which
manages air traffic control, to minimise the use of the nor'west
runway (when westerly winds blow) and the south-east runway (when
easterly winds blow.)
Because the maintenance work depends on the weather, we can't
say at this point how long it will take.
We are aware this may have some impact on some residents and
apologise for that.
