The author addressed two topics in this paper. One is a general overview of the current regulation of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) containing the environmental requirements relative to airport development and how this regulation is different in several important respects from the previous one. The second topic is noise -- the major environmental problem facing U.S. airports today -- and what kinds of steps have been taken recently to tackle this problem.
