Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

YSSY has 3 runways, the longer main north-south 16R/34L intersected by an east-west 07/25, and a parallel 'third' runway 16L/34R was constructed in 1992. Both parallel runways (16/34) use reclaimed land and extend out into Botany Bay.
Simultaneous parallel operations occur on 16L/34R and 16R/34L during most of the day. Since 1995 there has been a curfew after 23:00 (01:00 UTC) until 06:00 (19:00 UTC) for landings and departures to reduce noise over the residential areas. There is a shoulder period for 1 hour that flights may approach or depart over the bay only.
