  • Noise
  • Aircraft and airport noise are complex subject matters which have been studied for decades and are still the focus of many research efforts today.Here you will find information about aircraft and airport noise and who to contact if you have a question, concern, or complaint about noise issues. (faa.gov)
  • The FAA recognizes that aircraft noise issues can be highly technical and complex. (faa.gov)
  • The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) pursues a program of aircraft noise control in cooperation with the aviation community. (faa.gov)
  • Noise control measures include noise reduction at the source, i.e., development and adoption of quieter aircraft, soundproofing and buyouts of buildings near airports, operational flight control measures, and land use planning strategies. (faa.gov)
  • Aircraft noise is regulated through standards. (faa.gov)
  • The standard requires that the aircraft meet or fall below designated noise levels. (faa.gov)
  • The FAA has an active program, The Continuous Lower Energy, Emissions, and Noise (CLEEN) program, to advance the development of technologies to further reduce noise from aircraft. (faa.gov)
  • One of the goals of the CLEEN program is to develop certifiable aircraft technology that reduces noise levels by 32dB cumulative, relative to the ICAO noise standards. (faa.gov)
  • Because aviation is international, some (but not all) of the measures needed to reduce aircraft noise disturbance should be undertaken internationally. (sae.org)
  • International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is up to this task if national authorities give it its proper role: it has already made the right start towards establishing aircraft noise certification standards. (sae.org)
  • The paper presents a concise view of federal regulatory activities in the area of aircraft noise. (sae.org)
  • inspect

  • thrust
  • Initially, the aircraft climbs with a pitch angle of 45 degrees using engine thrust and elevator controls. (wikipedia.org)
  • The sensation of weightlessness is achieved by reducing thrust and lowering the nose to maintain a neutral, or "zero lift", configuration such that the aircraft follows a ballistic trajectory, with engine thrust exactly compensating for drag. (wikipedia.org)
  • This lasts all the way until the aircraft is again halfway up its upward trajectory, and the pilot again reduces the thrust and lowers the nose. (wikipedia.org)
  • The F-15's two 29,000 pound-thrust engines push it to two and a half times the speed of sound, making it the eighth fastest aircraft ever built. (boeing.com)
  • Tasks
  • The FAA has interpreted this to mean that the amateur builder must have performed at least 51 percent of the labor and tasks involved in completing the aircraft. (aopa.org)
  • operational
  • To ensure the safety of people in the air and on the ground, early aviation soon required that aircraft be under the operational control of a properly trained, certified pilot at all times, who is responsible for the safe and legal completion of the flight. (wikipedia.org)
  • ownership
  • It's an affordable arrangement for many who do not fly often enough to offset the cost of sole aircraft ownership. (aopa.org)
  • To do this, you will need to provide proof of ownership, an affidavit certifying that you built the aircraft from parts or a kit (you can use FAA Form 8050-88) and an application for registration ( Form 8050-1 ). (aopa.org)
  • maintenance
  • It is capable of performing organizational maintenance on assigned aircraft and Navy-funded equipment. (globalsecurity.org)
  • Perform organizational maintenance on assigned aircraft. (globalsecurity.org)
  • AIRCRAFT TECHNICIANS perform scheduled maintenance, make repairs, and complete inspections required by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to keep jets, prop planes, helicopters, and other aircraft in top operating condition. (act.org)
  • Here are resources for everything maintenance - from preventive maintenance that an aircraft owner can do, himself, to required aircraft inspections. (aopa.org)
  • The Aircraft Spotlight feature looks at an airplane type and evaluates it across six areas of particular interest to flying clubs and their members: Operating Cost, Maintenance, Insurability, Training, Cross-Country, and Fun Factor. (aopa.org)
  • Factory
  • In 1912 the Balloon Factory was renamed the Royal Aircraft Factory (RAF). (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1918 the Royal Aircraft Factory was once more renamed, becoming the Royal Aircraft Establishment (RAE) to avoid confusion with the Royal Air Force , which was formed on 1 April 1918, and because it had relinquished its manufacturing role to concentrate on research. (wikipedia.org)
  • Between 1911 and 1918 the Royal Aircraft Factory produced a number of aircraft designs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some orders were met by the factory itself, but the bulk of production was by private British companies, some of which had not previously built aircraft. (wikipedia.org)

  • time
  • In faster aircraft, like a Skyhawk or a Piper Arrow, you get less time on the ILS, so the amount of training you get per approach is less. (aopa.org)
  • Certification standards vary somewhat with location, and the inspector should be able to tell you what to expect when the time comes to have your aircraft inspected. (aopa.org)
