The effectiveness of various strategies for alleviating noise due to aircraft operations over communities near hub airports is examined. Included are the effects of (1) power and flight path management, (2) measures for reducing source noise, (3) changes in the traffic mix, and (4) introduction of "quiet", advanced aircraft. The scenarios studied utilize recent traffic mixes observed at the Los Angeles International Airport as a baseline from which noise abatement alternatives are derived. The results indicate that introduction of quite aircraft with improved terminal area performance capability may effect containment of adverse noise impact within the confines of the airport boundary. Reductions in the residential area exposed to high noise levels is also noted when two-segment approaches are flown and when various retrofit techniques are employed.
