Though airports are of crucial economic and social importance, aircraft-generated emissions have a major environmental impact for the surrounding environment and – in case of aircraft noise – often a source of conflict between airspace users, aerodrome operators, regulators and policy makers, as well as municipalities and their citizens. Notably, noise concerns are often the main limiting factors for airport development.
Especially around airports, aircraft emissions and their environmental impact is a complex technical subject with certain interdependencies, often misunderstood by the involved stakeholders and people affected.
The objective of this 3-day course is to provide a high-level understanding of aircraft noise, engine emissions and related environmental protection measures by covering subjects such as: emission sources on aircrafts, regulatory framework, aircraft noise and emissions certification, environmental impact of flight operation, health effects and implications, monitoring and control systems, modelling and simulation techniques as well as assessment methods and mitigating strategies.
This course targets an international audience of aviation experts (incl. airport operators, airlines, air navigation services providers) but also personnel of planning authorities and other environmental agencies or stakeholders involved in other aspects related to environmental impact of aviation around airports (e.g. legal professionals or land use planners).
It introduces with practical examples and exercises the latest development and studies, as well as tools available for forecasting or monitoring airport emissions (e.g. FAA AEDT 2d) and passive or active abatement measures.
Please note: This course can be booked as an in-house version in German or English - however, the course material is only available in English.
