TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Research Report 181: Assessing Community Annoyance of Helicopter Noise describes a protocol for conducting a large-scale community survey to quantify annoyance due to civil helicopter noise and presents the results of a test of the protocol which also helped improve understanding of the roles of acoustic and non-acoustic factors that influence community annoyance to civil helicopter noise. The report provides a better understanding of the factors affecting community annoyance with helicopter noise and possible differences between helicopter noise impacts and fixed-wing aircraft noise impacts.
