Assessment Topic

This report reviews the progress which has been made in airport noise control and presents a forecast of changes in aviation noise exposure that will occur during the balance of this century. Results are given of an analysis which examines the benefits of noise abatement flight operations, flight procedures and of restrictions on population encroachment, on residential noise exposure. Cost of residential sound-proofing and relocation, based upon in-depth studies, are presented for four air carrier airports which represent four airport categories. While the main focus of the report is on noise exposure above Ldn 65 at carrier airports, noise exposure around general aviation and joint-use civil/military airports is also discussed.
