  • How does living with aircraft noise affect wellbeing? A study of UK airports

    Airports are associated with air and noise pollution and may, therefore, reduce the quality of life of local people. This study assessed the link between aircraft noise and subjective wellbeing, using data from 17 English airports. The authors conclude that living under flight paths has a negative effect on people’s overall wellbeing, equivalent to around half of the effect of being a ...

  • How best to address aviation`s full climate impact?

    International regulation does not address non-CO2 emissions from aviation, despite their climate-warming effects. This study reports the findings of the AviClim research project, which investigated the feasibility of including CO2 and non-CO2 species in international protocols. Of several trading scenarios assessed, the authors found that a global emissions trading scheme for both kinds of ...

  • Investigation of environmental impact caused by aircraft engines

    The environmental effects of exhaust gas emissions from different types of spark ignitions (SIs) - naturally aspirated and air–cooled from piston–prop aircraft engines - at the landing and take–off (LTO) phase of flight–based operations are investigated in this study. The minimum natural resources effect was determined to be 1.37 MJ surplus energy/LTO in 320 in three cylinder displacement and ...
