Sound Initiative…A Coalition for Quieter Skies

Sound Initiative's goal is to end the use of Stage 1 and 2 aircraft weighing less than 75,000 pounds. An airport-industry led coalition comprised of government, environmental, and anti-noise proponents, Sound Initiative has successfully encouraged Congress to phase out Stage 1 and Stage 2 aircraft under 75,000 pounds, just as the requirements found in the 1990 Airport Noise and Capacity Act did for aircraft over 75,000 pounds.
