Flight certification

As global air travel grows, so does the concern for noise around airports. This leads to increasingly strict legislation of exterior noise.

Exterior noise is, therefore, a key priority for the aerospace industry and aircraft noise certification tests are required in order to establish certified aircraft Effective Perceived Noise Levels (EPNL) at each of the Approach, Flyover and Sideline certification flight conditions – in accordance with ICAO Annex 16, FAR 36 and IEC 61265 aircraft-noise certification standards.

The Brüel & Kjær Aircraft Noise Certification Test (ANCT) System accurately performs all measurement tasks needed for aircraft noise certification testing, and is based on our standard, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) products that cover the entire measurement chain.
