Abstract : Until the end of 1990 a great amount of low altitude flying of military airplanes was done in the Federal Republic of Germany. Up to then approximately 80 000 low altitude flights were performed annually. Many of these flights took place at a height from 500 ft to 1500 ft. Nearly 2/3 of the whole area of the Federal Republic of Germany was used for low altitude flights between 500 ft and 1500 ft. In seven distinct low flying areas flights even down to a height of 250 ft above ground were allowed. In a relative densely populated country these low altitude flights caused a great amount of disturbance and annoyance.
