STOMPer Stressed, who lives in the Punggol East area, says he struggles to study when military aircraft cause huge amounts of noise taking off and landing from Paya Lebar Airbase.
The STOMPer wrote:
"I am a secondary 4 student living in Punggol East.
"Paya Lebar Airbase is a takeoff and landing zone for planes, but these planes are simply causing too much noise.
"SAF Training Planes, specifically the F15s and F16s, take off from the Airbase more than eight times in a day, in strings of four to eight.
"These planes are very noisy, with noise levels measuring over 140 decibels. Not only does it disrupt my studies, it also could causes damage to people's hearing.
"With such frequent training, I feel more like I am living on Pulau Tekong or some war zone instead.
"The SAF should really reduce the frequency of such training sessions or attempt to quieten the engines of such planes.
"Although it is vital to train pilots to defend our country, it also causes annoyance and harm when taken to excessive levels."
