Article 1


These standards are determined pursuant to Article 11, Paragraph 1 of the Noise Control Act


Article 2


Testing of civil aircraft noise levels shall be performed in accordance with effective perceived noise (EPN), A-weighting maximum noise level, or sound exposure level (SEL) regulations in ISO-3891. The units employed are EPN dB, LAmax dB, and SEL dB, respectively.


Article 3

Article 6


Noise control standards for propeller aircraft are shown in the following tables in accordance with their maximum take-off weight and date of application for a prototype airworthiness certificate.
I. Noise control standards for propeller aircraft with a maximum take-off weight greater than 5,700 kg for which a prototype airworthiness certificate application was made by December 31, 1984 are shown in the following table:

II. Noise control standards for propeller aircraft with a maximum take-off weight in excess of 5,700 kg for which a prototype airworthiness certificate application was made after January 1, 1985 but before November 16, 1988 are shown in the following table:

III. Noise control standards for propeller aircraft with a maximum take-off weight of less than 8,618 kg for which a prototype airworthiness certificate application was made by November 16, 1988 are shown in the following table:

IV. Noise control standards for propeller aircraft with a maximum take-off weight greater than 8,618 kg for which a prototype airworthiness certificate application was made after November 17, 1988 are shown in the following table:

V. Noise control standards for propeller aircraft with a maximum take-off weight of less than 8,618

Either standards may be applied when the situation simultaneously conforms to the conditions in Subparagraph 1 and Subparagraph 3 of the foregoing paragraph. The same when the situation simultaneously conforms to the conditions in Subparagraph 2 and Subparagraph 3 of the foregoing paragraph.
The noise control standards in Paragraph 1 are not applicable to stunt, special event, agricultural, and fire fighting propeller aircraft.
