A COMMERCIAL AIRPORT NOISE ENVIRONMENT: MEASUREMENT, PREDICTION AND CONTROL
The data for a commercial airport noise measurement program included approximately 1,100 calibrated tape recordings at three observer positions and some 1500 supplementary peak level measurement at ten additional measurement points. For some individual airplane categories, there were substantial differences between results based on state-of-the-art noise prediction technology and those based on actual measurements. Certain takeoff procedures resulted in significant noise reductions for particular airplane types. Also, there was some evidence that specific categories of airplanes can be flown with reduced ranges of peak noise levels.
