Quiet American Skies

Quiet American Skies provides local communities with evidence-based resources to address the national public health problem of aviation noise and pollution.

In 1976, EPA Administrator, Russell Train stated “It is time for us all to come together, and to come to grips with the problem of aviation noise, and to build, at long last, an aviation system that is safe, healthy, and quieter.” In 2021, the problem persists.

Aviation noise and pollution is not simply an annoyance, it is a public health problem, manifesting in cardiovascular disease and other serious health disorders.

Quiet American Skies (QAS) was formed to raise awareness of aviation noise and pollution as public health and environmental problems and to encourage an accelerated transition to cleaner, quieter, healthier aircraft through appropriate regulation and new technologies.  We provide research, education, outreach, and work collaboratively with communities, businesses, and government agencies.

Quiet American Skies program came together through the work and leadership of noted noise expert, Dr. Arline Bronzaft, whose work on the impacts of transportation noise have gained worldwide attention. Arline is the recipient of a lifetime achievement award (2018 Presidential Citation) from the American Psychological Association.
