Smart Tracking was introduced at Sunshine Coast Airport between October and December 2013. The introduction of Smart Tracking at the Sunshine Coast in late 2013 will mean fewer flight diversions to Brisbane Airport during conditions of poor visibility as well as delivering safety and environmental efficiencies.
Smart Tracking arrival procedures are available for both runway 18 and runway 36 at Sunshine Coast Airport. These new procedures are contained within the long-standing flight path corridors currently in use at the Sunshine Coast and will not expose any new areas to aircraft noise. Smart Tracking approaches are designed to keep aircraft over water for as long as possible.
