EDINBURGH AIRPORT FLIGHT PATH CHANGES UPDATE
We had a lively public meeting on 3rd April with over 35 people filling the two halls that we had booked. Edinburgh Airport representatives in attendance were Gordon Robertson, Director of Communications ; Erik Geddes, Communications Manager ; Tony Kirkbright, from NATS ; Doug Meyerhoff, ATC Consultant. The four received quite a grilling and it was pointed out to them that it was difficult to make an informed response due to the lack of specific noise data. As a result Gordon Robertson agreed to provide cumulative noise information for Dalgety Bay. As agreed at the meeting this information is now available below in PDF format. Note that the information is still only for the centrelines of the proposed routes.

At our CC meeting on 10th April we discussed how we should respond to the consultation and it was agreed that the CC will submit a response that is based on the feedback received from residents. At the time of this meeting the feedback amounted to ten against the changes and one neutral. A summary of what was made clear at the meeting is available below in PDF format.
