This seems to be caused by traffic that deviates from the planned departure route. The project Micro climate Rijsenhout researches the cause of these deviations and possible measures to reduce noise annoyance in Rijsenhout.

RF-leg: CROS Pilot 3b’+

Concentrating air traffic in between communities can decrease annoyance. With this in mind, a trial started on November 22nd 2007 to concentrate traffic in between the communities of Hoofddorp and Nieuw-Vennep: the CROS Pilot 3b. The route makes use of the radius-to-fix navigation technique (also known as a RF-leg). In the CROS Pilot 3b’+ project the […]
