Aircraft noise measurement July 2022

Published: 13 September 2022, 15:15

FBB’s mobile measuring station was located on Wietstocker Dorfstraße between 30 June to 3 August 2022.  Aircraft noise measurements showed a continuous daytime sound level of 49.6 dB(A) and a continuous night-time sound level of 39 dB(A). A mean maximum level of 65 dB(A) was caused by take-offs from the southern runway heading west. Take-offs from the north runway heading west and a few take-offs from the south runway eastwards could also be recorded in Wietstock.

All measured values were significantly below the forecasts made for Wietstock before the BER started operations.

The continuous sound levels are important for, among other things, determining threshold values for guaranteeing noise protection measures. Rooms used at night are protected from a continuous sound level of 50 dB(A); rooms used during the day from 60 dB(A).
