An overview of current and proposed commercial airplane noise regulations is presented. Noise contributions from the individual components of a typical airplane powered by high bypass ratio engines are described followed by a discussion of the constituent elements of the airplane noise reduction engineering process. A brief status report is provided on the state of technology of each of the major airplane noise components. The scope of a required national research effort is indicated, as implied in recently proposed aircraft noise regulatory requirements.
