This is a repository of reports related to noise monitoring that may be of interest.
In line with the recommendation by the CAA in CAP1736, an external qualified party (To70) was commissioned to look at the validity of the input data to the ANCON noise model used to produced maps at EDI.
Concerns had been expressed about the use of vertical profiles based on London Gatwick departures and the use of nominal SID track rather than using radar-based measurement to describe the way aircraft are flown at EDI (track position, altitude and speed).
The report below shows that the concerns were justified and that the data input to the ANCON model to produce noise maps are not representative of operations at EDI.
For information these were the preliminary findings of the Aviation group:
Following on from the presentation of these reports to the EANAB it was decided to contact the CAA with our concerns letter to CAA
The EANAB received a response to our letter from the CAA Response from CAA
