LCY is also preparing to introduce an enhanced flight monitoring system, which will allow the community to review flight tracks and aircraft noise as measured by the airport’s monitors and review real-time and historical data.
LCY currently operates seven noise monitors, of which six are fixed in position around the airport. One is a mobile monitor for monitoring aircraft ground noise and reverse thrust usage.
The data from these monitors are used to validate the noise contours produced for the airport’s Sound Insulation Scheme and to monitor compliance with the noise contour area limit.
Data from the monitoring system is presented in the airport’s Annual Performance Report for different airlines and aircraft types.
