Aircraft Noise and Environmental Protection at Airports

Airports today are of critical economic and societal importance; arguably, the emissions generated by aircraft have a major impact on the surrounding environment and, in the case of aircraft noise, are often a source of conflict between airspace users, airport operators, regulators and policy makers, and communities and their citizens. In particular, aircraft noise pollution around airports is often the most important limiting factor for airport development. 

Specifically in the vicinity of airports, aircraft emissions and their environmental impacts are a complex technical issue with many interactions that are often misunderstood by the stakeholders and affected parties involved. 

The objective of this three-day course is to provide a high-level understanding of aircraft noise, engine emissions and related environmental protection measures. To this end, topics will be covered such as: Aircraft emission sources, legal framework in international, European context, aircraft noise and air pollutant certification, environmental impacts of aircraft operations, health effects and implications, monitoring and control systems, modeling and simulation techniques (ECAC Doc 29, BADA, ANP), environmental assessment methods, and active and passive mitigation strategies.  

Practical examples and exercises will be used to present the latest developments and scientific studies as well as available software tools for monitoring or forecasting airport emissions (e.g. FAA Aviation Environmental Design Tool – AEDT). 

This course is intended for an international audience of aviation professionals (including airport operators, airlines, air navigation service providers), as well as representatives of planning authorities and other environmental authorities. Stakeholders involved in other aspects of the environmental impact of aviation around airports (e.g., lawyers or land use planners) are also addressed in this course. 

Please note: This course can be booked as an In-house version in German or English - however, the course material is only available in English. The German course version covers German specific topics related to aircraft noise and engine emissions, such as German specific aircraft noise calculation methods („AzB“) and legislation.

Trainer

Christoph Strümpfel, M.Sc.

Christoph is an expert for sustainable aviation within airsight’s consulting division. He is responsible for all training courses related to sustainable aviation and environmental protection around airports, sharing his knowledge and practical experience with other national and international aviation experts. 

After graduating as Master of Science in Aeronautics and Astronautics from the Technical University of Berlin, he worked as a research assistant and lecturer at the Chair of Flight Guidance and Air Traffic at the TU Berlin. In his scientific career, Christoph focused on modeling aircraft noise and emissions, UAS/eVTOL noise calculation and optimization of flight procedures with respect to environmental targets. For airsight he has conducted several environmental assessments and case studies such as Berlin, Leipzig, Luxembourg, Malta and Dubai. 

As a member of the Aircraft Noise Commission at Berlin-Tegel Airport, Christoph was responsible for the conduction of field studies about continuous descent operations and noise abatement departure procedures with respect to aircraft noise modeling and monitoring. Since focusing on aircraft noise and emission modeling in his career, Christoph collected broad experience with the FAA’s Aviation Environmental Design Tool (AEDT).
