Noise from helicopters can be very disturbing. Unfortunately councils currently have no power to deal with noise from any aircraft, however the noise team continues to log all complaints and pass details on to the relevant bodies. The Greater London Authority has investigated helicopter noise in the Capital and published its report: London in a Spin, which you can download below. The report makes practical recommendations to the Government and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to improve the management of helicopter traffic and reduce the environmental impact of helicopter noise. You can contact the CAA direct on 020 7453 6525.
Other organisations dealing with aircraft noise issues include the Airport Operators Association (020 7222 2249), the Aviation Environment Federation (0207 248 2223), the British Air Transport Association (020 7730 6931) and the Department of Transport (0300 330 3000).
