ICAO Committee Agrees On 10 Decibel Reduction In Aircraft Engine Noise 

ICAO's Committee on Aviation Environmental Protection (CAEP), meeting this week in Montreal, issued a series of recommendations to reduce aircraft noise and exhaust emissions, including a noise standard 10 decibels lower than current international noise rules. U.S. airlines, airframe and engine makers unanimously supported a reduction of eight decibels for aircraft in production (DAILY, Jan. 16). Airports Council International called the consensus "too little, too late." The CAEP recommendations will be submitted to the ICAO Council for review and further action.
