There are still complaints about aircraft noise around the airport. Now experts met at the Gremertshausen noise measurement station. Conclusion: Everything is in the green zone!
Gremertshausen - In order to be able to monitor actual aircraft noise, Flughafen München GmbH (FMG), in consultation with the Aircraft Noise Commission, has placed 20 fixed noise measuring points around 16 kilometers around the airport. Every second, the noises generated by incoming and departing aircraft are recorded there. Three additional mobile devices are used as needed and on request – one of which is currently located in Gremertshausen.
The question was: Are residents in Gremertshausen entitled to passive noise protection?
At the most recent meeting of the Aircraft Noise Commission, the departure corridor 26R NW was discussed. Thomas Enghofer, municipality of Kranzberg, had noted that Gremertshausen was exposed to noise from flights on the northern route and should therefore possibly be included in the protected area. As a result, residents in Gremertshausen would be entitled to passive sound insulation, such as the installation of soundproof windows. His wish: a list with the date and time of the flights with measured individual sound levels.
At the beginning of March, the measuring device was set up
FMG has complied with this request and has already positioned a mobile, solar-powered aircraft noise measuring device in Gremertshausen at the beginning of March. District Administrator Helmut Petz, Chairman of the Aircraft Noise Commission, and Isabel Altmeyer (Head of the Department of District Affairs and Social Affairs) had Josef Schwendner, Hermann Blomeyer, Felix Will and Manfred Wilhelm (all FMG) explain the measuring station and all the technical details to them.
(By the way: Everything from the region is now also available in our regular Freising newsletter.)
Measurements were taken until the end of May. Initial figures suggest that the noise pollution caused by aircraft movements through the departure corridor 26R NW is significantly lower than the values that would trigger noise protection claims. According to these values, ten times as many movements would be permitted by law, Petz calculated.
