Newcastle Airport, like other airports, monitors the noise it creates. Newcastle has contracted this out to an external contractor so that there is no conflict of interest (we thought there was - we were wrong and we apologise). The contractor provides the Airport with reports and information derived from the data collected.
However, we think detailed aircraft noise data for each flight should be publicly available as well as summary report so everybody can see exactly what is going on. Also, the official analytics that airports use to check how much noise they are making, average noise across chunks of time. This means that the noisy flight that wakes you up at 6 in the morning, for example, is smoothed out. We think, as do many others, that this is something else that needs to change.
