Environmental Considerations and the Metropolitan Airport System 700253

This paper examines the nature of the environmental challenge that airports face in the context of metropolitan area systems planning. The greatest problem is aircraft noise. This type of noise, which is immune from public regulation under traditional local powers, is not recognized adequately in planning for airports or nearby communities. Its effect on education is described, as is the question of housing development and industrial construction adjacent to airports.
