Sound is very much important to our daily live, but noise is not. Noise is used as an annoying sound. Most of us every time hear the sounds in everyday life, likewise the traffic, the television, loud music, people talking on their phone and even pets shouting in the middle of the night. A lot of these things have become a part of the culture and hardly annoys us. Moreover, noise is made by big trucks, household gadgets, vehicles, motorbikes on the road, loud speakers and jet planes and helicopters’ flying over cites, etc. However, airplanes have been an effective noise pollution which the community members living in the suburban nearby the airport are disturbed by the jet noise that planes are making while departing and arriving to
Disadvantages. The technology to significantly reduce the noise emitted from jet aircraft does not yet exist. Substantial time and money must be invested in research to develop such technology. When the technology is created, airlines must be willing to replace or modify existing aircraft in accordance with the changes. Federal regulations may need to be altered to require the use of noise reducing devices.
With the rapid growth of commercial air travel in the 1970s, the FAA recognized that the nation’s airports contributed significantly to the national economy and international commerce, as well as being a critical mode of transport for the public. Airports needed funding to improve safety and maintain airport infrastructure such as runways, taxiways, NAVAIDS, and land acquisition. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) formed the National Airport System Plan (NASP) to ensure these significant airports received Federal grants to make these improvements. The FAA revised the NASP with the Airport and Airway Improvement Act of 1982 and called the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) to reflect the further expansion.
Therefore, it is through proper planning of future and current airport amenities that the airports
The land that was chosen for the Airport site was in Adams County but it lacked infrastructure development. This means DIA will need to create that infrastructure like water, power, and sewage disposal. In turn, this will increase DIA project costs. In the case study from Project management: a systems approach to planning, scheduling and controlling, Adams County also negotiated an agreement with DIA but it limited DIA “to such businesses as airline maintenance, cargo, small package delivery, and other such airport-related activities” (Kerzner, 2001, p. 643). In both the examples, we see that negative stakeholder involvement was detrimental to
The air travel accounts for almost 11% of Europe 's GDP and 24 million jobs. Air travel is the most popular mode of travel for both UK residents travelling abroad and for overseas residents visiting the UK. In 2005, UK residents made a record 53.6 million visits by air, representing almost four-fifths of all visits abroad (Friends of The Earth, 2006). The aviation industry currently faces a lot of impediments due to growing impacts of climate change, local air quality, surface access conjunction and noise.
The environmental impact of aviation in the United Kingdom is increasing due to the increasing demand for air travel in the country. In the past years the UK air transport industry has seen sustained growth.
Secondly, Qantas is also dedicated to reducing the noise produced by aircrafts. The Group cooperates with aircraft manufacturers to regularly enhance the noise performance of the aircraft above and beyond the
The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) forever changed the way airports were classified when it was unveiled in 1982 (Wells, 2011). The aviation industry had grown significantly since deregulation went into effect, and a new system needed to be put in place that would distinguish airports with incredible growth and expansion from those that served niche markets or flight training (Wells). Under the NPIAS, airports were broken down into three major categories: commercial services airports, reliever airports, and general aviation airports (Wells). The following paragraphs describe the three categories of airports that were created by the NPIAS, and conclude with an airport that fits into that particular category today.
The Airport Noise and Capacity Act of 1990 (ANCA) contained several provisions with the intent to both lower and better regulate noise pollution. It initially recognized that the nation needed a noise policy, and said policy would play a vital role in the country’s air transportation system. It accomplished these items by better regulating the three stages of aircraft.

Cowper-Smith & de Grosbois (2011, p.59) stated that airlines are not currently focusing enough on their social responsibilities, an area in which Qantas should look to be at the head of their industry. The way in which Qantas operates can have monumental impacts not only on their customers but to the environment itself. Planes although a current need in society also come with a heavy amount of baggage which influences the environment. Aircraft noise, impact on local air quality are just some of the by-products of aircraft travel (Goodman, 2009 p.14). The most discussed and criticised issue within aircraft travel in the modern climate however, is the affect that it has on the environment. This is due to amount of emissions in which are consumed through aircraft travel. Shell aviation the “leading global supplier of world-class aviation fuel and lubricants” supplies almost 7000 aircrafts with fuel each day, refuelling a plane every 12 seconds. Qantas airlines should be knowledgeable on how much fuel they are using and the type of fuel they are using. Pollution resulting from greenhouse gasses and emissions can result in horrific consequences for the environment. Examples of costs that Qantas may endure from its impact on the environment could be adding to the growing concern of global warming throughout the world (Kolstad, 1996 p.1). This is leading to issues such as sea level rising, melting of snow and ice and changes to plant growth and nutrition
Electric cars are becoming very popular in today’s world and are becoming more main stream. One reason for this is the need for automobiles that have a lower or a zero carbon footprint. For the majority of the history of the automobile, the propulsion system was a gas or a diesel engine that would run off of fossil fuels. The burning of fossil fuels is very hazardous to our world and also creates much toxic pollution. However, electric cars run off of electricity, which is a very clean and pollution free resource, depending on how the electricity was produced of course. In this paper we are going to examine the history of electric cars, look into modern electric car technology, and peer into the future of electric car technology to see if EVs might be the answer to dramatically reducing our global pollution.
Aviation contributes approximately 2 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions, a figure which is projected to grow through 2050. Although fuel efficiency has improved by nearly 16 percent since the 1990s, future technologies—including better flight patterns, more-efficient engines, and alternative fuels—have promise for further emissions reductions. The profitability challenges of the early twenty-first century, however, affect the industry's ability to invest in new technology. (Hill, 2010 17-22)
This essay is about sustainable aviation which is going to clarify the meaning of sustainability and arguing that in some cases the idea of sustainability is unachievable and in some cases is achievable. Sustainability is about environmentally friendly, corporate responsibility. Aviation is an increasingly important form of transport, providing very important mode of connections to both passenger and cargos.(Tony2005)aviation is part of sustainable transport but these are all linked together, with most of the companies trying to change them, sustainability’’ has arisen from ecology and the study of ecosystem’’ . Flying got may benefits and also supports the economy and jobs, taking people on holiday to see different people and different cultures . however it also has got lots of problems for those people living around airports and it is a beg and also growing contribution to climate change . it also explains how sustainable aviation has an effect on the environment, the economy an social factors.
