Abstract : Noise levels generated by T-37 aircraft were measured at Mather AFB CA while simulating various ground operations and during a flyover. These data were collected to assist in the evaluation of the impact of a proposed T-37 mission on base activities. Noise was recorded inside and outside selected buildings on base which were thought to be affected by these operations. Maximum levels encountered at each building are presented. Measured noise levels indicate little or no impact on base activities from noise generated during operation of T-37 aircraft. Where appropriate, recommendations for minimizing noise and suggestions for additional evaluations are made.
