Abstract

The study is emphasizes on noise impact of aircraft at the Sultan Ismail Petra Airport, Pengkalan Chepa, Kelantan. Aircraft noise is affects people living in the vicinity and its surrounding areas and it is the main noise pollution at the airport. Aircraft noise which is produced during engine run-up, take-off, approach, landing and flyover is determined by calculating the average from the A-weighing decibel, dB (A) which is obtained from the data sampling. The equipment used is Pulsar Model 64 Data Logging Sound Level Meter. Sampling are taken at three difference radiuses which are 500 meter outwards from the airport compound, 1.kilometer and 1.5 kilometer away from the same point. There are 12 sampling locations and four locations at each contour. The study area is covered residential, academic institution (schools and universities), golf club, industrial area, clinics and plantation. Noise contour represented the level of noise in the area (recipient) is determining the current condition of the study area. The study also determines the impacts of aircraft noise towards surrounding community. The result obtained were supported by the unstructured interview session. Results show the first contour which is within the 500 meters from airport compound exceeded the Maximum Permission Sound Level by Department of Environment. Malaysia. The siting and zoning at the area is not suitable and people around complaints about the impact as well.
