10 Years Later: Meigs ‘We did not go down without a fight’ Airports are unique aviation assets. As with all real estate, a large portion of their value is their location. Loss of a facility…
NASA’s noise reduction technology reduces aircraft noise by more than 70 percent Acoustic Research Measurement landing gear fairings cavity treatments Adaptive Compliant Trailing Edge Driven by increasing global and national standards, by escalating expectations…
The Longmont airport noise tactic shows that by being positive, explaining not only the policy, but the basis for the rules and being responsive works.
The Table Mesa-FAA process is truly open. The most effective approach is a collaborative dialogue aimed at defining win/win alternatives to achieve NextGen efficiencies while fairly balancing noise impacts.
A Purdue study estimates NextGen will reduce carbon emissions by the equivalent of removing 300,000 cars annually. However, the noise impact of more precise flight patterns may force Congress to reconsider funding.
In 2015, we predicted what would happen in the aviation industry during 2016… Were we correct? We’d give ourselves an acceptable A-.
All 17 aviation safety predictions are certain to happen in 2017. Return tomorrow to see the scorecard for the JDA Journal 2016 Prognoses.
The Milton, MA board is requesting the Boston carriers to retrofit older model Airbus aircraft with a “vortex generator” to reduce noise during descent. The request signals that the FAA should establish a position on this “retrofit.”
