Aviation

We are experts in airport noise management and assessment. Our consultants have extensive experience of providing noise and vibration services to UK and International Airports in managing their noise impacts through the consenting and regulatory processes through to their day-to-day operation.

Our experience includes:

  • Environmental Assessments for airport developments including:
    • New and Extended Ground Infrastructure such taxiways, terminal buildings and MRO facilities
    • Airspace changes (including assessment conforming to CAP725, CAP1520)
    • Options for Mitigation and Restriction
  • Regulatory Compliance including Noise Mapping and Action Planning
  • Expert representation
  • Research and Innovation Projects
  • Noise modelling of aircraft air and ground operations
  • Measurement of specific activities for modelling and complaint investigation
  • Temporary monitoring and support to airports in analysing monitoring and Noise and Track Keeping (NTK) data
  • Support and Technical Advice to decision makers and local authorities

We are innovators in this this sector and have developed a number of bespoke tools to support and enhance the modelling and analysis airport noise. Our tools, compatible with software tools underpinned by commercial software tools including AEDT and LimA. These tools include our InFlight system that allows actual aircraft flight tracks to be modelled within AEDT. This tools require access to an Airport’s flight track data or radar feeds, allowing models to be prepared for any time period or metric. We also have bespoke tools allowing aircraft ground noise to be modelled in parallel with air emissions.
