Reducing aviation noise is important to the efficient operation and expansion of the National Airspace System because community opposition to aviation noise is a major obstacle to airport and runway development. The FAA and NASA have the primary fed. responsibility for R&D on aviation noise. FAA focuses on the impacts of aviation noise on communities, while NASA focuses on noise at its source -- aircraft engines and airframes. Both FAA and NASA have set noise reduction goals.
