Abstract : The FAA conducted a noise measurement survey of helicopter operations at Norwood, Massachusetts on April 27, 1983. The purpose was to gather needed information for defining noise problems with in-service helicopter operations at a general aviation airport in a suburban area. Noise level data were sampled over a period of approximately 8 hours. The data collected reflect noise levels at two different residential sites from all local source of noise during that particular sampling period. These data from helicopter target of opportunity are termed survey data as opposed to controlled test data in order to reflect the limited control factors which contribute to the variability of the measured noise.
