THE LAND USE PROBLEM IN THE AIRPORT ENVIRONMENT--AND SOME SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS
Approaches for attacking the noise problem in the vicinity of airports are considered. One approach is concerned with reduction of noise in the aircraft. The high by-pass engine of the present generation of wide-bodied aircraft is an example of the efficacy of this technique. A second approach is related to the use of operational procedures which will minimize noise exposure for the public. The third approach involves a control of the use of the land in the airport environment to ensure that it is compatible with the use of the airport. Particular attention is given to the various factors and difficulties regarding an implementation of the third approach and the possibilities to overcome these difficulties.
