To the Honourable Members of the House of Representatives in the Parliament assembled:

This petition of certain citizens of Rockingham Beach, Western Australia, draws to the attention of the. House, the noise created by civilian aircraft doing aerobatics. As they do their maneuvers, screaming up and down, close to our homes in Rockingham Beach, W.A., every day all day, and occasionally right over our homes and gardens, this noise from their engines impacts on our quality of life. Two people in an aircraft doing aerobatics create continuous high-pitched noise unlike aircraft just passing overhead.

We therefore ask the House to do all in its power to restrict aircraft from doing aerobatics so close to our residential homes in Rockingham Beach, W.A., so that the noise and possible dangers from this type of activity does not impact on our day to day living.
