||Noise exposure of pilots in the cockpit of jet aircraft
||Die Schallbelastung der Piloten im Cockpit von Strahl-Verkehrsflugzeugen [in German]|
||Sep. 1991, Vol.45, No.3, p.159-167. Illus. 21 ref.
||Measurements with an artificial head in the cockpit of 7 different types of jet aircraft identified radio communication using headphones as a major noise source for pilots. The average noise level from this source was above 105dB(A), with peak levels extending to 127dB(A). The risk of hearing damage for pilots was confirmed from random samples of audiogrammes and through notifications of occupationally-induced hearing damage. Speech-filter type earplugs tested by pilots were welcomed by the majority of pilots older than 30 years.
