EU exit

Please note that, in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a negotiated agreement, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. These will be updated in due course following the UK’s departure from the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.

Title:The UK Civil Aircraft Noise Contour Model ANCON - Improvements in Version 2
Description:Version 1 of the UK aircraft noise contour model (ANCON-1) is described in DORA Report 9120. This supplementary report describes changes that have been made to upgrade the model to ‘Version 2’ standard (ANCON-2). Until a planned self-contained replacement for DORA Report 9120 is released, the two reports together provide an interim technical description of the ANCON-2 noise model as of June 1999.

The process by which ANCON-2 calculates noise exposure is, for the most part, the same as that of ANCON-1. The main change is that the contribution to Sound Exposure Level from an aircraft flight segment is now derived from Noise-Power-Distance tables as a function of engine thrust rather than from wholly empirical Reference Noise Levels (RNLs).

The first edition of the updated ANCON-2 model (‘ANCON-2.1’), used to produce the 1996 and 1997 Leq contours for the London airports, is described briefly in an appendix; however, like its predecessor, ANCON-2 will be subject to continuing development as the DORA database expands and internationally agreed modelling procedures are improved.
