Biggin's new noise guardian

A new state-of-the-art noise monitoring and track keeping system is being launched at Biggin Hill Airport on Wednesday (12 April) which allows anyone to access details via an internet portal of user aircraft and those overflying the London area.

Airport managing director Will Curtis said: “We promised to deliver this system as part of the new agreement on airport opening hours and it is now fully installed, tested and ready for use by the public. 

“The airport will now be able to monitor aircraft operations to ensure noise generated by aircraft using Biggin Hill is kept to an absolute minimum. I am passionate about ensuring we are always as good a neighbour as practically possible.”

The public can access the system at the website below to view aircraft movements, log a complaint or just learn more about the airport.

Instructions for use are online, while the telephone complaints procedure remains unchanged for those who are not comfortable with the internet or simply prefer the more traditional methods.

The Bruel and Kjaer noise and track keeping system is the same in use at many major airports, including Heathrow and Gatwick, but Curtis said it was believed Biggin Hill had the strictest limits in the UK.
