Residents say aircraft ‘shortcuts’ making noise levels worse

PUBLIC Services is investigating after Torteval residents complained that a change in aircraft take-off and landings is affecting their quality of life.
The airport flight path to the west goes over the Portelet area, but parishioners say aircraft going to and from the south-east are taking shortcuts and flying over their homes.
West district deputy Dave Inglis, who lives in Rue du Planel, has put written questions on the subject to Public Services minister Deputy Paul Luxon which will be answered at the next States meeting.
Nicholas Drake, 74, and wife Gillie have lived in La Rue du Planel for 13 years.
‘We bought our house in the comfortable expectation that we were south of the airport flight path but that’s not the case any more and we are under it,’ he said.
