THE CONCORDE--RESULTS OF A SUPERSONIC AIRCRAFT'S ENTRY INTO THE UNITED STATES

The Federal Aviation Administration conducted surveys of public opinion during the Concorde trial period at Dulles International Airport to determine community reaction. GAO believes the information obtained from these surveys is unreliable and should not be used in the formulation of policy towards the Concorde. Noise complaints received indicate a negative Concorde response. Although GAO's review dealt only with the Concorde's noise aspects, decisions affecting this aircraft are considered to have important implications for the U.S. economy and U.S. international relations.
