Flying Operations

Canberra Airport is a civil non-curfew airport with 24 hour flying operations. A number of noise abatement initiatives are in place to minimise the impact on the community. Air Traffic Control for the airfield is provided by Airservices between 0600-2300 local time. Aircraft are still able to use the Airport outside these hours.

Flying by the Australian Defence Force is minimized late at night, however, military aircraft are occasionally required to arrive or depart outside Air Traffic Control hours.
