THE Royal Australian Air Force's RAAF Base Amberley is the largest Aussie base, employing over 5000 people.

When flying in the Ipswich area Air Force pilots and crews operate the aircraft in a way that minimises aircraft noise.

Air Force has an honest and open approach about the noise experienced by residents living near their bases and training areas.

Detailed information about aircraft noise, including Australian Noise Exposure Forecast (ANEF) maps, is available at the Defence Aircraft Noise website or contact 1300 DEFENCE (1300 333 362).
