By Rogéria A.G. Eller, Ligia M. S. Urbina and Protógenes Pires Porto, Instituto Tecnológico de Aeronáutica – ITA

This research aims to evaluate the aircraft noise perception in the vicinity of the Sao Paulo International Airport – AISP/GRU (the biggest airport of South America). The relationship between aircraft noise perception and social class levels, are specifically studied. This relationship is expected to be positive.

losses of residential properties, caused by aeronautical noise. The social class variable had been measured utilizing average per capita income of the population who live nearby the airport.
