The Air Co-ordinating Committee has considered recommendation No. 14 of the Interim Report from the House of Representatives Select

The Army aircraft training areas are located wherever possible, away from residential areas so as not to inconvenience the public with noise. When Army aircraft approach residential areas, they fly on routes authorised by the Department of Civil Aviation.
