This paper summarizes the impact of airport noise on people residing in the vicinity of airports and estimates the noise control requirement to reduce the severity of the existing impact. Several of the significant options of comprehensive noise control program are reviewed relative to this requirement, with emphasis being given to source control. It is concluded that all available and practicable noise control methods must be fully exercised to begin a reduction of noise for airport neighbors with the promise of increasing relief over the next twenty years.
