Aircraft Noise Problem in Airport Vicinities 550253
Control of aircraft noice in airport vicinities lies in two general directions. The first is in control of noise at its source — in the aircraft itself. The second is in the procedural measures in operation of the aircraft and is the subject of this paper.
Measures adopted by the NATCC for application at the major civil airports in the New York-New Jersey metropolitan area are described here. They include:
A preferential runway utilization plan.
Accelerated climbouts stressing rapid gain of altitude.
Restriction of ground run-ups to specified locations.
Adoption of procedures particularly adapted to an individual airport.
Receipt and analysis of the public's complaints relative to aircraft noise.
A public information program designed to acquaint airport neighbors with aircraft matters.
Continuous effort at obtaining full compliance with adopted procedures.
