Abstract
The report describes a method for calculating flight profiles for any conventional fixed wing aircraft operating condition likely to occur in the vicinity of an airport, and provides performance parameters for aircraft currently operating in the U.S. civil fleet. The method uses certain simplifying assumptions for ease of computation, but provides adequate accuracy for prediction of the noise exposure produced by a complex set of operations around an airport.
