Standardizing Aircraft Noise Reduction Measurements for Airport Sound Insulation Programs

Current research by FAA regarding outdoor-to-indoor sound insulation measurement best practices for airport noise mitigation programs is anticipated to conclude during 2020, but will not address supplemental measurement methods or standardization of data analysis and documentation processes. The need for further investigation in these areas was highlighted by earlier ACRP-sponsored research and is necessary to attain... more »

Research Projects

Understanding implications of regional curfews on US Airport operations

Research is needed to help airports
 better define the extent of the problem
 better define the potential direct impacts of restricted scheduling windows
 identify unintended consequences at both originating and destination airports from restricted scheduling windows on intercontinental routes
 propose alternative noise mitigation strategies to achieve similar or better outcomes for communities in the vicinity of... more »

Electric Aircraft on the Horizon - Planning handbook for Airports In Reserve

Generate informed guidance for airports to plan for electric aircraft adoption. Electric aircraft could begin operating from airports within 3+ years. The aviation industry lacks a method to distinguish between marketing hype and realistic projections. A new ACRP report could provide help airports understand which sites are best suited for the viable technology associated with electric powered aircraft. Airports would... more »

Research Projects

Strategies to mitigate concentrated aircraft noise from PBN and RNP/RNAV procedures

The research will characterize the changes in community noise impacts due to the implementation of RNP procedures. It will provide a solid picture of the character and scope of the problem through case studies and noise modeling. Possible mitigation strategies will be explored detailing the advantages and disadvantages of each approach supported by parametric noise analyses.
