Federal Aviation AdministrationThe Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will hold a public webinar to present its recently-released Noise Research Portfolio and Neighborhood Environmental Survey on Monday, Feb. 22, 2021, at 6:00 p.m. ET.

The webinar will provide an overview of the agency’s noise research program, including the survey, followed by a live question and answer session. It will be held on the Zoom platform and livestreamed across social media on the FAA’s Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn accounts. You can register to attend the webinar on the FAA website.

The FAA is sharing information on its aircraft noise research programs that include initiatives related to the effects of aviation noise impacts on the public, efforts to mitigate such noise exposure, and research on public perception of aviation noise. This information includes the results of the Neighborhood Environmental Survey, a multi-year research effort to review and improve FAA’s

understanding of community response to noise. The survey included responses from more than 10,000 people living near 20 airports across the country, and the results show an increased level of reported annoyance due to aircraft noise in contrast to earlier surveys.


The FAA is seeking public comment on its noise research program, including the Neighborhood Environmental Survey and any additional areas recommended for further investigation. The public comment period opened January 13, 2021, and the notice is published in the Federal Register. A link to the notice is also available on the FAA’s Aviation Noise website.
