Reasons for the delayed noise sharing trial

This request has been withdrawn by the person who made it. There may be an explanation in the correspondence below.

Dear Airservices Australia,

On 29 May 2023, it was communicated that an outcome for the proposed Noise Abatement Procedure (NAP) trial was expected by 30 June 2023. Subsequently, on 04 July 2023, it was mentioned that the assessment had been completed and a decision would be released shortly.

As of 11 August 2023, I am yet to receive an update. I would appreciate if you could provide:

a) An explanation for the delay beyond the initial 30 June 2023 timeline.
b) A clearer timeline for when we can anticipate the decision to be released.

I value transparency and am hopeful for a comprehensive response.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Terhorst
