A link to the CAA's web page on noise. It says: "There's no getting away from the fact that aviation can be noisy. When aircraft land and take off, depending on the aircraft and its altitude, as they fly overhead, they produce a considerable amount of noise."
Aircraft noise is the most significant cause of adverse community reaction to airports. Limiting or reducing the number of people affected by significant aircraft noise is therefore one of ICAO's main priorities .
An umbrella movement networking the interested environmental organisations, airport community groups and individuals opposed to unsustainable aviation expansion, and its damaging environmental effects, including climate change, noise and air pollution.
Sustainable Aviation is an industry campaign that is promoting the growth of aviation and trying to persuade governments and the public that this growth won't negatively affect the environment. It's a well funded campaign. We don't agree with them BUT, we think you should see what they say.
