Abstract:

Fifteen of the most popular single-engine general-aviation light aircraft were tested for the noise intensity present during normal cruising operations at 2000, and 10,000 feet MSL mean sea level. In comparison with currently accepted DRC damage-risk criterion curves, the noise levels found even in the quietest plane tested could be damaging. However, a well fitted pair of earplugs should protect against the physiologically damaging noise intensities encountered in this study. Author
