  • The Battle Against Aircraft Noise

    There is good news for anyone living near or under a flight path of one of the UK’s airports this week. A report out from the Airport Operators’ Association (AOA) shows that UK airports are reducing noise pollution and carbon emission despite growth in passenger numbers. The AOA was keen to publish the report in response to political and ...

  • Germany - Reducing Noise Pollution from Aircraft Noise

    The German Federal Government wants to dramatically improve the protection of residents from aircraft noise. This decision is based on a directive (16/509) according to which existing 1971 legislation on protection against noise pollution resulting from air traffic should be “significantly improved”. The government envisages reducing threshold values around large military and civil airports ...


  • PULSE approved for aircraft noise certification

    Following the Instituto Nacional de Técnica Aeroespacial (INTA) completion of noise tests, for the new Airbus A330 Multi Role Tanker Transport (MRTT) Aircraft, PULSE has been approved to international standards for aircraft noise certification.Based on testing and extensive validation work at Brüel & Kjær headquarters, the company’s noise data acquisition, analysis, recording and reproducing ...

  • Helping communities understand aircraft noise

    Brüel & Kjær has launched a new feature rich website - WebTrak MyNeighborhood - which ties into local airport noise monitoring systems to provide communities with answers about long-term noise impact. The website helps build an understanding of the ...

  • Metropolitan Washington Airports authority implements enhanced aircraft noise event detection

    Historically, MWAA’s noise monitors determined aircraft noise events by identifying noise levels that exceeded a defined “noise event threshold” for a minimum duration. However, as aviation technology advanced, noise events associated with quieter aircraft were not always conveyed well using the defined threshold. Consequently, MWAA sought an improved methodology to detect ...

  • AEF event highlights aircraft noise and mental health link

    AEF and HACAN hosted a well attended event in Parliament this week which explored the relationship between aircraft noise and mental health. The event was chaired by Twickenham MP, Dr Tania Mathias. Dirk Schreckenberg, from the Centre for Applied Psychology, Environmental and Social Science in Hagen, Germany, provided a summary of the findings of the ...

  • Aircraft noise at night may lead to long-term health impacts

    Exposure to aircraft noise at night for more than 20 years could increase the risk of heart disease and stroke, according to research conducted around six European airports. Risk also increased for those constantly exposed to road traffic, but this may have been caused by air pollution rather than noise. This study, part-funded by the EU-project ENNAH1, investigated the possibility of a link ...

  • Aircraft noise at night can result in dysfunction of blood vessels and cause long-term cardiovascular disease

    Recent research into the impact of different levels of noise on 75 volunteers reveals that disturbed sleep caused by night-time aircraft noise can damage blood vessels and increase the levels of stress hormones. As these physical changes are potential pathways to high blood pressure, heart and circulatory disease over the long term, reducing night-time aircraft noise is important for preventing ...

  • Transatlantic Plan to Cut Aircraft Emissions Lifts Off

    LE BOURGET, France - Over the roar of planes at the Paris Air Show here, U.S. and European Union officials today announced a joint action plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions from aircraft. In the presence of aircraft industry representatives, European Commission vice president responsible for transport Jacques Barrot and Marion Blakey, administrator of the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration, ...

  • Manned Electric Aircraft 2013-2023 : Researchmoz.us

    Electric aircraft serve the need for reduced noise, air and ground pollution and reduced global warming. They provide freedom from foreign sources of oil. They make new things possible such as helicopters that can carry out a controlled landing after engineering failures thanks to electric backup and leisure aircraft getting all their "fuel" from solar cells on the hanger. ...


  • Transport noise: the health impacts of noise pollution

    Whilst living in cities, near airports or road and rail links, might prove useful for the commute, the noise levels can sometimes be too much to bear. A growing body of research reveals, transport noise can cause sleep disturbance, cardiovascular disease, elevated hormone levels, psychological problems and even premature death; studies on children have identified cognitive impairment, worsened ...

  • Long-term exposure to aircraft emissions causes premature death

    As well as contributing to the greenhouse effect, aircraft emissions have an important impact on air quality and human health. This study, which quantified the effect of civil aviation emissions across the globe, suggests they could be responsible for 16 000 premature deaths every year, at an annual cost of over €18 billion. The air quality costs of aviation were similar to its climate ...

  • UK aircraft rerouting aims to maintain safety and improve environmental performance

    Proposals to redraw the aircraft route map across a large area of south-east England have been published for public comment in the biggest-ever consultation by NATS, the UK’s leading air traffic management company.  The proposed changes are the first fundamental overhaul in several decades for this area of airspace and are designed to reduce delay whilst maintaining safety and improving ...

  • Turn down the noise — softening the impact of excess transport noise

    As a major contributor to greenhouse gases, the transport sector figures high on the international climate change agenda. But for many living in cities, under flight paths or near major road and rail links, it's another of transport's by-products that causes most immediate harm: noise. Clearly, transport noise's long-term impacts fall a long way short of the apocalyptic projections for unabated ...

  • Reviewing the multiple impacts of noise pollution

    While occupational exposure to noise has declined, ‘social’ exposure in the form of personal music players or rock concerts is estimated to have tripled for young people since the 1980s. A new review examines studies that have investigated noise sources, including environmental (e.g. traffic) and social (e.g. via headphones) sources. The review also explores research into the range of ...

  • International Noise Awareness Day – Here’s 5 Facts About Noise

    Wednesday 29th April 2015 is International Noise Awareness Day. A day when people, organisations and governments around the world raise awareness of unwanted noise that can affect your health. To commemorate this day, here’s 5 noise facts. 1. The Definition of Noise is “Unwanted Sound” Technically, there is actually no such thing as a noise. ...
