February the 14th is a day with special meaning for many people. For many it is for Valentine’s Day, for others it is the day when Becker Helicopters are due to complete the first phase of this program of Helicopter Pilot Training.
The next program is expected to commence in September 2014.
If Mike Becker’s word is accurate and the training program has progressed without a problem, then repetitive circuits by Becker Helicopters over our estates are due to finish by today. Some local residents remain highly sceptical of Becker Helicopters and are adopting a wait and see policy on this commitment.
Local company Chopperline will continue to do repetitive circuits over our estates so residents cannot expect all repetitive circuit flights to cease.
BeCA has confirmed that Sunshine Coast General Manager Peter Pallot and senior management member Jason Rainbird will be in attendance at our upcoming BeCA Public Meeting on March 3rd, 6:45pm at the old Land Sales Office in Lomond Cres (just near the tennis court). Cr Baberowski will be in attendance as well and we can expect a comprehensive update on any developments regarding the Satellite Helicopter Training facility arising from Mark McArdle’s Helicopter Noise Forum.
All residents from both Bellvista and Bells Reach are welcome to attend this meeting. From time to time other residents from other areas attend our meetings. As a “public” meeting all are welcome.
The first edition of the BeCA Newsletter for 2014, “The Connector” is in the hands of the printer and should be available for volunteer deliverers to deliver across Bells Reach and Bellvista later next week.
With the generous sponsorship of the Bellvista Tavern, BeCA now has a sandwich board to inform all residents of upcoming community events (above left). It is hoped the Bellvista Market Place IGA Supermarket will permit BeCA to place the board near its entry so we can keep everyone up to date on upcoming Community events.
