Abstract
An analysis of the noise-hazard to hearing that exists in nine aircraft types presently operated by the Canadian Forces is presented in this paper. Calculated aircrew noise exposures, based on (1) aircraft noise measurements and (2) the attenuation characteristics of flight helmets and communication headsets used by personnel in these aircraft, suggest that for the most part, the long-term risk of significant noise-induced hearing loss among the crews of these aircraft is not excessive when properly fitted hearing protection is worn.
