Abstract:

Operations on low level Military Aircraft Training Routes MTRs generate a unique noise environments. A review of available information on the nature of, and potential subjective response to, this environment has been carried out. The noise exposure from MTR operations is well below threshold limits for hearing damage or other physiological effects. However, based on this review, an interim noise metric is recommended for evaluation of the potential annoyance response of communities to MTR noise environments. Keywords Aircraft noise.
