Fly in Peace!
Living close to an airport can't be much fun. Constant noise from take-offs, landings and thrust reversals is not only a blight on the community but also one of the fastest growing environmental problems and a major public concern.
Public demands for quieter airports have brought about strict legislation that has made airport noise monitoring compulsory in many countries. Indeed, growing environmental concerns constitute one of the most serious obstacles to capacity expansion of airports. By taking the step of measuring airport noise you can:
- Enforce legislation
- Minimise the noise impact caused by aircraft in both the present and the future
- Maintain safe and efficient aircraft operations
- Deal effectively with noise complaints
- Improve the environmental image of your airport
- Predict and optimise air traffic
In short, you'll be meeting the needs of both your business and the community.
