There Are Already Sensible Alternatives For Pilot Training
Which Could Be Used Instead Of The Moorabbin Airport

 The alternatives are not in densely populated urban areas and
there are enough locations to spread out the impact.

A quick visit to the Victorian Premier's website reveals that resourced pilot training on an international standard is already happening in several regional locations and there are plans to invest further in the associated infrastructure.  So the idea of moving training away from the densely populated community around the Moorabbin Airport would be quite feasible and could be achieved quickly if someone was motivated.

The regional locations are:

Mangalore

Bendigo

Stawell

Edenhope

Warrnambool

Cohuna

Latrobe

And they are currently being used by students from China Southern, China Eastern, Singapore Airlines, Vietnam Airlines and DragonAir.

See more in the following article or contact the Premier to discuss why it makes sense to move training from the Moorabbin Airport

For some reason the premier's office removed this link from their site - wonder why?  (we found an archived version on another site) 

There are also a number of aviation studies which have concluded that moving aviation training has little impact on its viability or jobs because (as you might expect) it is a mobile industry.
