It is suggested that most noise abatement programs impair the efficient use of aircraft, decrease flexibility of operation, and require aircraft to operate below optimum performance. Operational restrictions are listed, including minimum noise routings, use of reduced thrust on take-off, and power cutback on climb-outs. Minimum noise routes are described with regard to problems incurred in take-off and landing stages, and proposals by the National Air Traffic Services, the Civil Aviation Authority, and the Guild of Air Traffic Control Officers are reviewed.
