Aviation noise: CAA report


The competing priorities report includes a study of trade-offs with air quality and carbon in the reduction of noise.

The Civil Aviation Authority’s (CAA’s) report presents an analysis of national aviation noise forecasts with recommendations on appropriate noise metrics.

These reports have been published alongside the Aviation 2050 — the future of UK aviation consultation and additional supporting documents.
