A small single engined aeroplane decided to do several touch ‘n go landings at Caloundra Airport soon after 6 am this morning. For aircraft based at Caloundra Airport this is outside the guidelines set out in the “Fly Neighbourly Agreement”.
After completing at least 4 touch n go landings the aircraft disappeared to the west and over the horizon. This seemed to indicate the offending aircraft was not one based locally but a visitor from another airport using Caloundra Airport facilities to practise landings at no fee.
Non Caloundra Airport based aircraft are not subject to the special conditions set out in the “Fly Neighbourly Agreement” but are subject to CASA’s guidelines. CASA’s guidelines permit this sort of behaviour.
It is expected all the roundabout roadworks and the Bellvista Blvd/Caloundra Rd designated left lane roadworks should be completed but for all the landscape works sometime this week. When line markings are fully in place BeCA is keen to see if the designated left turn lane alleviates traffic mayhem on Bellvista Blvd at school pickup times.
Stockland Staffers were busy at work on Friday afternoon on a community based program to tidy up Bellvista as a part of their Keep Australia Beautiful campaign. The staffers targetted the lake and Bellvista Blvd to collect 10 large bags of rubbish from the beside the lake and the road.
