In addition to the primary noise problem created by overflying aircraft, there are other noise problems within the airport and adjacent communities due to aircraft ground operations and maneuver prior to take-off and after touch-down. The present discussion concerns the noise characteristics of such ground operations as taxiing and holding, engine run-ups, and auxiliary power unit operation during cargo and passenger handling. Attention is given to take-off roll and lose of ground effects of lift-off. The methods of noise control discussed include also the special noise problems created due to thrust reversal operations after touch-down, together with the variation in noise levels produced by changes in thrust levels, particularly apparent during automatic landing.
