Briefing Leaflet

Noise Protection

May 03, 2017


Pilots are exposed to varying levels of noise during their careers. While exposure to this noise is inherent to the profession, the negative effects of noise can be prevented.

Noise levels should be reduced, but as this is often impossible to do in an aircraft, noise protection devices should be provided if the 80 dB 8 hour limit is exceeded.

This Briefing Leaflet provides an overview of hearing, effects of noise and recommendations for the pilot community to protect their hearing.
