Arundel & South Downs MP Nick Herbert has raised concerns about aircraft noise over Downland villages resulting from a trial flight path from Gatwick. The MP has received numerous complaints from residents who say that it results in lower flying aircraft and noise over their villages.
The flight path trials are part of a consultation about London airspace by the Civil Aviation Authority.
In a reply Stuart Wingate, Chief Executive of Gatwick Airport, said that the trial would run until 17 August, after which the flight paths would revert to their previous route and he apologised for any disturbances caused during the trial.
