What Influences when planes fly near me?
The number of flights operating at Perth Airport varies by the time of day, day of the week and, at times the season, in response to customer demand. The airport typically experiences morning and afternoon peaks which are larger during the work week as there are more flights servicing fly-in/fly-out and other business related traffic.
The number of aircraft near your area at any time will be influenced by both the airport throughput (runway capacity) and the wind, which will dictate which runways and flight paths are used.
