This information is provided both for aircraft that have been noise type certificated under 14 CFR Part 36, and for aircraft for which no such requirement currently exists. FAA Advisory Circular 36-3G is available on the FAA Web site.

Noise Levels for U.S. Certified and Foreign Aircraft (AC 36-1G) - This United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Advisory Circular (AC) provides noise level data for aircraft certificated under 14 CFR Part 36. Noise level data for foreign aircraft certificated to ICAO Annex 16 standards are also provided in a separate appendix for informational purposes. FAA Advisory Circular 36-1G is available on the FAA Web site.
