Abstract
Although the sound pressure levels occuring in the engine test cell, CFB Baden-Soellingen, are extremely intense (137 dBA) with a J79 engine running at military power, the attenuation provided by Canadian Forces standard-issue earmuffs is sufficient to reduce the noise at operators' ears to more tolerable levels (108 dBA). Moreover, the noise doses sustained during engine check-outs permit average work periods of up to 49 minutes per day in the test cell with engines running.
