The questions of airport noise control, the withdrawal of certain aircraft, and the refitting of aircraft were discussed, and comments were made on airport design with an integrated movement system, and the airport certification required for commercial airports. It was proposed that the task of noise control be transferred to the Environmental Protection Agency. It was noted that it is technically feasible to convert the older engines so that they would be only half as noisy as they are today. About $35 million dollars would be needed to complete the research and development. The advantages of decentralized handling combined with centralization in the secondary area are pointed out. Hanover Airport was used as an illustrative example of such design. Financial planning and the operation of V/STOL operations were also discussed.
