AIRCRAFT NOISE AND AIRPORT GROWTH

Alleviation of aircraft noise continues to be one of the major technological challenges for air transportation. Unfortunately there is no comprehensive plan which encompasses Federal, State and local levels of government and the many segments of the aviation industry-for achieving such alleviation. Similarly, there is no one governmental or private body which has overall responsibility for the problem. The political, legal, economic, and technical factors which are an inherent part of the problem all but present one group from having total responsibility, and an efficacious plan from being formulated and implemented. This paper expands on these points, and presents the Department's policy and program for aircraft and community noise compatibility.
