The new Norwegian F-35s jet has a more powerful engine than the F-16 fighter previously used by the Norwegian Air Force and significantly increases noise. Previously, there were complaints about similar noise levels in Denmark.

People living near the fighter base in Orlando, Trondelag County believe that the noise from the new Norwegian F-35 fighter is so loud that it is demanding compensation from the state.

The F-35 has a more powerful engine than the F-16 fighter previously used by the Norwegian Air Force, which significantly increases noise.

There are a total of 220 landowners behind the proceedings formally filed after Easter. They believe that overwhelming noise levels reduce asset value.

“We have been concerned that the noise intensity of the aircraft should be better reflected in the calculations made. We now believe we have achieved this,” said Arild Paulsen, a lawyer. Says. Said National broadcast NRK. “We have previously sent procedural notices, and we will send proceedings to the states in which we seek compensation in accordance with neighborhood law,” Paulsen said.

Earlier noise measurements based on mean values ​​were unfair with respect to perceived noise, according to the so-called “noise group” of the region.

“The disadvantages of real noise are better explained by noise calculations that indicate the number of incidents per day above a certain level and the duration of such incidents,” Paulsen emphasized.

According to the “Noise Group,” new calculations show that the amount of noise above 60 dB has tripled compared to 2010 before the F-35 contract was signed, but exceeds the 67 dB threshold. The amount of noise has increased fourfold.

Paulsen cites a similar case, arguing that the locals have the basis for their proceedings. In 2006, when residents around Oslo Airport’s Gardemoen were sentenced by the Supreme Court, the average compensation amount was SEK 200,000-300,000 ($ 23,000-35,000) per household. As for the lawyer, Ørlandet’s individual differences are Gardemoen.

So far, Norway has received 24 F-35 fighters. An additional 10 of these aircraft are currently being used to train Norwegian pilots in the United States. Norway has purchased a total of 52 fighters, making it the largest military source in history.

Previously, a similar noise problem occurred in Denmark, a Scandinavian companion who purchased 27 F-35s.
