Conduct research to update the state-of-the-science regarding the feasibility of reducing or eliminating noise in communities from aircraft departures, specifically behind the start of takeoff roll, with active noise reduction technology.
To develop carbon offset methodologies for both commercial and general aviation airports that generate revenue.
Conduct research into cost effective strategies for periodic monitoring of airspace surfaces such as TERPS 20:1 surfaces to ensure they remain clear of obstructions. Particularly at smaller rural airports that may not have staff, zoning, or significant infrastructure that would otherwise make these issues easier to manage.
GA Airports face a beneficial at the same time potentially costly decisions to support electric aircraft at their airports in the next 2-4 years. This project will equip airports with rigorous guidance to understand the environmental benefits of electric aviation for airports to evaluate when they start to consider investing in electric charging infrastructure.
