QUIET. PEOPLE LIVING HERE - A STRATEGY FOR COPING WITH AVIATION NOISE

Airport noise problems are discussed with attention given to complaints of residents living in residential areas impacted around suburban airports (through the airport may have been built in an originally sparsely inhabited area) and of airport proprietors faced with civil lawsuits by nearby residents and at the same time restricted from taking necessary noise abatement measures while forced to carry legal liabilities. The need to replace or retrofit noisy aircraft is stressed, and the advantages of airports buying up noise buffer zones before a suburban airport area becomes impacted and real estate values rise, are pointed out. Cases where lower noise accompanies more efficient use of fuel are indicated.
