AIRPORT ENVIRONS: LAND USE CONTROLS

ALMOST 2/3 OF THE TOTAL U.S. POPULATION LIVES IN A STANDARD METROPOLITAN STATISTICAL AREA. A GREATER DEMAND FOR AIR TRANSPORTATION CALLS FOR NOISE ALLEVIATION APPROACHES. QUIETER AIRPORTS CAN BE OBTAINED BY (1) REDUCING NOISE AT THE SOURCE THROUGH ENGINE MODIFICATION, (2) REVISING AIRCRAFT OPERATIONAL PROCEDURES TO LESSEN NOISE IMPACT AND AVOID POPULATED AREAS, AND (3) DEVELOPING A PROGRAM OF LAND USE PLANNING AND CONTROLS FOR COMPATABILITY BETWEEN AIRPORTS AND THEIR NEIGHBORS.
