NOISE ABATEMENT PROCEDURES
See UK AIP EGSS AD 2.21 - Noise Abatement Procedures for details.

See Stansted Noise Strategy and Action Plan 2011-2015 for increased fines on violations of Noise Preferential Routes by end of 2011. The current fine of 500 pounds per infringement will increase to 750 pounds per infringement, during the Night Period 2300- 0700 this will increase to 1000 pounds per infringement.

CONTINUOUS DESCENT ARRIVAL (CDA)
Runway 22

See Stansted Noise Strategy and Action Plan 2011-2015 for information on CDA introduction to Runway 04 in 2012.

AIRPORT CURFEWS

NOTE: Following an extensive consultation about proposed changes to the Night Flying Restrictions at London Airports (the "QC system"), the UK Secretary of State, Department for Transport has taken the following main decisions. They are applicable from 30 October 2006:

- The QC system as such has proven efficient and will be retained. The noise certification levels remain the basis for the QC classification.

- The definition of night (23:00 to 07:00) and night quota period (23:30 to 6:00) are maintained.

- The 9 EPNdB adjustment for arrivals is maintained.

- The exempt category is no longer determined by weight, but by noise levels (aircraft below 84 EPNdB are exempt from night restrictions).

- A new QC/0.25 band has been created (84 to 86.9 EPNdB). Aircraft in this category account for 0.25 in the overall night quota

- QC/4 classified aircraft are subject to a scheduling ban within the night quota period (23:30 to 6:00). This is not an operating ban and would permit aircraft movements within this period exceptionally, when aircraft are severely delayed.

Furthermore, the objective is to progressively encourage the use of quieter aircraft i .e. a progressive decrease in the overall night quota per season over the next years.

NOISE MONITORING SYSTEM
See UK AIP AD2-EGSS 2.21 for details and updates.
3. It shall be the duty of every person who is the operator of any aircraft which is to take off or land at Stansted Airport – London to secure that, after the aircraft takes off or, as the case may be, before it lands at the aerodrome the following requirements are complied with:

(1) After take-off the aircraft shall be operated in such a way that it is at a height of not less than 1000 ft aal at 6.5 km from start of roll as measured along the departure track of that aircraft.

(2) The sites of the noise monitoring terminals relating to Stansted Airport – London are:

(3) Subject to sub-paragraphs (5) and (6) below, any aircraft shall, after take-off, be operated in such a way that it will not cause more than 94 dBA Lmax by day (from 0700 hours to 2300 hours local time) as measured at any noise monitoring terminal at any of the sites referred to in sub-paragraph (2) above.

(4) Subject to sub-paragraphs (5) and (6) below, any aircraft shall, after take-off, be operated in such a way that it will not cause more than 89 dBA Lmax by night (from 2300 to 0700 hours local time) and, that it will not cause more than 87 dBA Lmax during the night quota period (from 2330 to 0600 hours local time) as measured at any noise monitoring terminal at any of the sites referred to in subparagraph (2) above.

(5) The limits specified in sub-paragraphs (3) and (4) above shall be adjusted in accordance with the following table in respect of any noise monitoring terminal at any of the sites referred to in the table in sub-paragraph (2) above to take account of the location of that terminal and its ground elevation relative to the aerodrome elevation.

Site 6: Morley, Woodside Green minus 1.1


(6) For the purpose of determining an infringement of the limits specified in sub-paragraphs (3) and (4) above, if the aircraft was required to takeoff with a tailwind, an amount of up to 2dB of the noise recorded at the noise monitor should be disregarded. The amount to be disregarded shall be:

0.4 dB for a tailwind of up to 1 knot
0.8 dB for a tailwind exceeding 1 knot but not exceeding 2 knots
1.2 dB for a tailwind exceeding 2 knots but not exceeding 3 knots
1.6 dB for a tailwind exceeding 3 knots but not exceeding 4 knots
2.0 dB for a tailwind exceeding 4 knots.

For this purpose, tailwind is to be calculated from the wind data measured in the on-air field anemometers and wind vanes according to the formula:
(windspeed x cosine (runway heading minus wind direction)) x – 1.

(7) Where the aircraft is a jet aircraft, after passing the point referred to in sub-paragraph (1) above, it shall:

(a) between the hours of 0600 and 2330 local time maintain a gradient of climb of not less than 4% to an altitude of not less than 3,000 ft.

(b) between the hours of 2330 and 0600 local time maintain a gradient of climb of not less than 4% to an altitude of not less than 4,000 ft, unless it has been cleared via Barkway, in which case it shall maintain a gradient of climb of not less than 4% to an altitude of not less than 3000 ft.

The aircraft shall be operated in such a way that progressively reducing noise levels at points on the ground under the flight path beyond that point are achieved.
