Previous Press Releases:
The Civil Aviation Authority was due to commence a Post Implementation Review (PIR) of the new Luton Airport flight path (RNAV) in August 2016. This review was postponed due to technical issues with the SID (Standard Instrument Departure) technology in some planes. As a result those planes were not following the RNAV route. Those issues have now been resolved and the CAA has approved the changes to the SID that resulted, there have been no changes to the RNAV route. All planes should be using the RNAV route by February 2017.
There will be a six week period from February 2017 to August 2017 whilst data is collected by Luton Airport. This should include data about complaints received by Luton Airport from overflown residents.
The CAA will then commence their PIR in August 2017.
St Albans Quieter Skies (STAQS) continues to campaign for a reduction in the air noise over Sandridge and North St Albans. Sandridge Parish Council is supporting STAQS. STAQS are exploring a number of options including lobbying for an increase in the height planes fly at over the area.
