AIRPORT NOISE REDUCTION FORECAST. VOLUME I. SUMMARY REPORT FOR 23 AIRPORTS

A detailed analysis of cost effectiveness of two aircraft noise reduction alternatives was carried out and the results are summarized in this report. The alternatives consisted of: two different modifications of civil air carrier aircraft having JT3D or JT8D engines. Both alternatives assumed standard use of a two-segment approach procedure incorporating a glide slope for landing. The analysis specified includes a detailed evaluation of noise impact at 23 airports for the years 1972, 1978, 1981, and 1987 along with a detailed cost analysis of implementing the alternatives.
