FPT Reports

Our flight performance team produces a variety of publications, including quarterly and annual reports and noise studies.

The reports are technical documents which contain detailed data on aircraft activity at Gatwick, including details of our performance against a number of noise mitigation measures, night flying, an update on the community noise monitoring programme and an analysis of complaints and enquiries received.

Many of the reports below have large file sizes and we recommend that you view them via your desktop rather than mobile device.

Annual noise studies

For several years we've run a programme of noise monitoring to get a better understanding of the levels of aircraft noise in the communities surrounding Gatwick Airport.

This involves placing a mobile noise monitor in a location for typically 12 months and recording the results. The reports are written by our independent noise consultants. There are two types of report: summary reports which provide a snapshot of the noise climate for the monitoring period and an annual in depth noise study. 

Find out more information on Gatwick's community noise monitoring programme.

Gatwick’s noise and track keeping system

Our noise and track keeping system called Casper Noise, was installed at Gatwick in April 2013.

The CAA's Environmental Research and Consultancy Department (ERCD) has carried out a detailed performance analysis and report to make sure that the system provides reliable data for reporting purposes.

END noise action plan

Under the Environmental Noise (England) Regulations 2006, we are required to produce a noise action plan to manage noise issues and impacts from aircraft departing from and arriving at the airport. This noise action plan complements our Section 106 Legal Agreement with West Sussex County Council and Crawley Borough Council, our sustainability strategy as well as our ongoing noise management processes and mitigation measures.

You can also find out more about the issues discussed in this report in our quarterly FPT reports on this page.

The noise and track monitoring advisory group (NATMAG)

NATMAG brings together representatives from the DfT, NATS, British Airways, Gatwick Airport and local authorities. The group discusses a wide range of noise and track-keeping issues and monitors track-keeping performance, night engine testing and ground noise complaints.
