A Very Noisy Business

How can a business operate at such a noise level that it can be heard all over the Coffs Harbour city area. Yet every day our peace is shattered in parks, gardens, the beach, schools and churches by the droning on, and on, and on, and on - of the sky-divers' plane. This factory for making noise (and money - nothing else) is allowed to enter our homes and recreation areas - just because it is a plane. Most planes come and go. Mostly, they go somewhere else. This one just stays climbing to height over the city on full power. The pilot doesn't care - he has headphones blocking the noise; and he is making money while we suffer. Surely, they can climb over a part of the landscape or ocean where the noise will have lesser impact than on the 65,000 residents of Coffs.
