Though airports are of crucial economic and social importance, aircraft-generated noise is a major annoyance for the surrounding communities and 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.

Aircraft (or airport) noise is a complex technical subject, often misunderstood by the involved stakeholders and people affected.

The objective of this 3-day course is to provide a high-level understanding of airport noise by covering subjects such as: aircraft noise’s sources and characteristics, regulatory framework, health effects and implications, monitoring and control systems, modelling and simulation techniques as well as mitigating measures.

This course targets an international audience of aviation experts (incl. aerodrome operators, airlines, air navigation services providers) but also personnel of planning authorities and other environmental agencies or stakeholders involved in other aspects related to airport noise (e.g. legal professionals).

It introduces with practical examples and exercises the latest development and studies, as well as tools available for forecasting or monitoring airport noise (e.g. AEDT) and passive or active abatement measures.
