How can citizens and government work together to significantly decrease aircraft noise in our community?
Noise abatement is not a local issue and there is an ongoing nationwide dialog between the FAA, legislators, residents, citizens, industry and other advocacy groups. Significant noise reduction could come from new federal legislation regarding
- Hushkits of Stage II aircraft under 75,000 lbs. certificated weight or
- A review of the DNL noise metric and adoption of a lower noise threshold than 65DNL
- Reducing the onerous of requirements of the 14 CFR Part 161 process.
