EANAB ANNUAL REPORTS
While the Edinburgh Airport Noise Advisory Board, EANAB, is now in its fourth year of operation, this last year has proved to be the most problematic and possibly the most difficult of its existence. Nonetheless, we have witnessed real improvements in our working relationship with the airport alongside a generally optimistic outlook for the year ahead.
This EANAB Annual Review of 2019 activities has been constructed specifically to fulfil two functions. The first is to examine what activities EANAB has been involved with in the last year and for what purpose. The second is to highlight those areas we believe we should be lending our expertise to on noise issues in the coming year.

Aviation Consultancy Reports
The Aviation Consultancy group’s presentation:
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 the To70 reports to the EANAB it was decided to contact the CAA with our concerns.
