This study program involved response of 48 persons to seven different simulated commercial airport noise environments. Each exposure period was of 1-1/2 hours duration and subjects experienced and rated eight of these 1-1/2 hour noise exposure periods. The test environments simulated a conventional living room environment. Number of aircraft noise intrusions per exposure period ranged from 6 to 18 flyovers and indoor Leq(dBA) levels ranged from 38.9 to 52.1 dB. Some of the conclusions are: Noise exposure from a 'new' aircraft fleet mix (circa 1980) is clearly more acceptable than that from an 'old' fleet mix (circa 1965). Commonly used noise exposure methods such as NEF, Leq, and mean peak dBA are level dependent. Depending on the noise exposure method used, 2.5 to 4.0 dB is perceived as a reliable change in noise exposure. Predictive capability of a noise exposure method is a function of the engineering calculation procedure employed to weight the acoustic energy. Mean peak level exposure methods have greater predictive capability than energy summation methods. Leq(dBA) is a relatively poor predictor. (Author).

Practical Airport Operations, Safety, and Emergency Management: Protocols for Today and the Future focuses on the airport itself, not the aircraft, manufacturers, designers, or even the pilots. The book explores the safety of what's been called ‘the most expensive piece of pavement in any city’— the facility that operates, maintains, and ensures the safety of millions of air passengers every year. The book is organized into three helpful sections, each focusing on one of the sectors described in the title. Section One: Airport Safety, explores the airport environment, then delves into safety management systems. Section Two: Airport Operations, continues the conversation on safety management systems before outlining airside and landside operations in depth, while Section Three: Airport Emergency Management, is a careful, detailed exploration of the topic, ending with a chapter on the operational challenges airport operations managers can expect to face in the future. Written by trusted experts in the field, users will find this book to be a vital resource that provides airport operations managers and students with the information, protocols, and strategies they need to meet the unique challenges associated with running an airport. Addresses the four areas of airport management: safety, operations, emergency management, and future challenges together in one book Written by leading professionals in the field with extensive training, teaching, and practical experience in airport operations Includes section on future challenges, including spaceport, unmanned aerial vehicles, and integrated incident command Ancillary materials for readers to reinforce concepts and instructors teaching operations courses Focuses on the topics of safety, operations, emergency management, and what personnel and students studying the topic can expect to face in the future
