Incorporation of noise nuisance assessments in planning of airports is discussed. The article addresses the need to evaluate expected traffic flows, noise levels of future aircraft (as announced by manufacturers), legislative restrictions on noise level, and the need for feedback from airport planners to industry and government on airport area noise loadings. Noise nuisance criteria are compared. Economic disadvantages of nighttime airport curfews are examined. Data on air pollution by airport operations are deemed inadequate. Noise associated with general aviation and training flights at smaller airports is also considered.
