Monitoring Flight Track and Noise Data
The airport monitors and records all flight track and noise data regardless of whether we have received a complaint from a member of the public or not.
If we find that an aircraft has broken Department for Transport (DfT) regulations, the airport will investigate further with the airline concerned.
We have a noise penalty scheme in place; aircraft which exceed the set noise limits are fined. The proceeds from which are go to The Stansted Airport Community Trust which supports projects within the local community.
In the event of an aircraft flying off track, we will also contact the local Air Traffic Control services to see if there was a specific reason for the track deviation.
