Why Edinburgh Airport could not cope

with a doubling of flights to one a minute.

 

The current controversy over the trial additional westerly flight path (TURTUR) at Edinburgh airport and the shambolic way the Airport Management is handling this, came sharply into focus for me yesterday.

 

Edinburgh Airport Flight Paths - how it affects the Blackness Area.

I have posted an article from the Edinburgh Evening News (28th April) here.

The overall aim of the new trial flight path is to allow departures to double from the 2 minute interval maximum available now.  The route is in addition to the three existing westerly departure routes and is on trial for 6 months.  I have certainly noticed a marked degree of aircraft disturbance in the last few weeks with flights turning directly over our property at Cauldcoats.
