Managing the Impacts of Aviation Noise

CANSO has collaborated closely with ACI (Airports Council International) to launch a new initiative to help reduce noise from aviation. They have published Managing the Impacts of Aviation Noise, a best practice guide for reducing aviation noise, especially for communities near airports. The guide examines the challenge of aviation noise and describes methods that airport operators and ANSPs can use to manage and reduce its impact. It reviews four current approaches for managing noise: reducing noise at the source; land use planning; noise-reducing operational procedures; and operating restrictions. Operational procedures include techniques such as tailored arrivals, continuous descent operations, arrival or departure path alternation and managing thrust. The noise mitigation measures described in the guide can be collaboratively implemented by ANSPs, airports and aircraft operators.
