Annotation:
Noise guidelines and regulations have been adopted internationally for aircraft noise in the vicinity of airports. Although these regulations address developing nations and have been successful in reducing noise levels, there is evidence that airlines in the developing world are more likely to buy loud aircraft. This article examines this problem in South Africa. The author found that major domestic issues challenging this nation and its government have left little room for attention to aircraft noise, even as more development occurs around airports.
