Helicopters over Naremburn

As we have a major transport corridor running through the middle of Naremburn, we can and do have some occasions where RTA, Police and other helicopters will be in the airspace above us.
More significant, however, are the regular flights to the Helipads in our area, those at Channel 9 and the Royal North Shore Hospital.

Channel 9 Helicopter flight times:-

  • During Eastern Standard Time – between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm
  • During Daylight Saving Time – between 7:00 am and 8:00 pm.
  • Sundays and Public Holidays – between 9:00 am and 6:00 pm.

These times can be broken in the case of an emergency, but to the knowledge of the Chief Pilot, Channel 9 has not broken their curfew for years and strictly adheres to the above times.

Royal North Shore Hospital

Helicopters flying late at night and in the early hours of the morning are to and from the Royal North Shore Hospital with seriously injured patients or those with life-threatening medical conditions.
