Abstract

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) took the first step in eliminating the use of noisy second generation jet transport aircraft (those compliant with the noise certification criteria contained in Annex 16 to the International Civil Aviation Convention) from the international fleet. The principle features of the resolution are that elimination of these jets should occur over a period not less than seven years in length and not begin before 1995. Various countries in the developed world have enacted domestic rules to achieve a phase out of the use of these aircraft from their skies. The resolution went on to address the issue of individual airports such that where procedures could be enacted to solve noise problems and obviate the need to phase out these aircraft, then they should be introduced. It was recognized that land use in the vicinity of airports should be studied further to attempt to obtain protection from residential encroachment and to consolidate gains in terms of reduced numbers of noise impacted people that would result from the phase out
