Abstract : Routine unprotected exposure to acoustic noise within cockpits of many trainer aircraft represents potentially hazardous stress. The character of the acoustic noise found within the cockpits of fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft used primarily for flying training is described and illustrated. The effect of various maneuvers commonly encountered in training flights on cockpit noise is evaluated, and factors of aeromedical significance associated with noise in trainer aircraft are identified and described.
