Summary

A Fly Neighbourly Advice (FNA) is a voluntary code of practice negotiated between aircraft operators and communities or authorities that have an interest in reducing the disturbance caused by aircraft within a particular area.

This FNA is the result of an understanding between locally-based scenic flight and charter operators and the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service to operate above the World Heritage Area and Mount Field National Park in an agreed responsible manner.

FN 7 complements the mandatory aviation operating and safety regulations and air traffic management procedures applicable to the area.
