On 16 November, Helicopter Association International (HAI) and the American Helicopter Society International (AHS) co-hosted a Flying Quiet webinar, held at HAI headquarters in Alexandria, VA.
This event featured members from the FAA’s Noise Division within the Office of Environment and Energy, as well as presentations from NASA, the Department of Transportation’s Volpe Center, helicopter manufacturers, HAI’s Fly Neighborly Committee, and the AHS Acoustics Technical Committee.
The goal of the event was to enlighten the helicopter community on current research efforts by the FAA, research organizations, helicopter manufacturers, and academia focused on reducing helicopter noise and noise complaints. The webinar also provided a means for the 65 registered participants to solicit feedback and ideas for future research and to identify gaps, synergy, or overlaps in noise research efforts.
