This paper focuses on the noise abatement problem around major airports. Special attention is paid to the noise regulations as applied to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. A series of technical operational measures is subject of current NLR research. The objective of this research is to investigate how community noise, caused by arriving and departing aircraft, can be reduced without degradation of the present level of safety and without significant reduction of airport capacity during peak hours. Two noise abatement procedures are highlighted. These concern a concept for an advanced procedure for flying Standard Instrument Departures. Results of preliminary research are shown and a combined flight and ATC simulation program, to be carried out in the near future, is explained.
