NEW AIRPORT IN GOTHENBURG--HOW THE NOISE PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN HANDLED

Noise monitoring and abatement procedures instituted at a commercial airport capable of handling about 60,000 movements per year are described. The selection of a parallel runway instead of a crossed runway layout is discussed, and the stipulated entry heights of landing aircraft are considered. A noise monitoring system designed to provide noise level and flight path assessments for all aircraft using the airport is also mentioned. Maintenance of a 55-decibel flight noise limit is required at the airport.
