EU exit

Please note that, in the event of UK participation in EASA and mutual recognition of licences and certificates ceasing, some CAA website content and application forms may continue to carry the EASA logo or reference the EU or EASA rather than the UK CAA in the short term. These will be updated in due course following the outcome of the transition period negotiations on the long-term aviation relationship between the UK and the EU. In the meantime, the guidance provided and the application forms accessed via the CAA website portal will continue to be valid.

Title:Aircraft Noise and Sleep Disturbance: A Review
Description:The review covers the main findings of research into the effects of aircraft noise exposure on sleep,
and includes the effects on electroencephalogram (EEG) and changes in sleep architecture, and their implications for sleep quality, mood and performance. Field and laboratory studies are compared, and the use of actigraphy versus polysomnography as a means of measuring sleep disturbance in large populations around airports is discussed. The physiological implications of noise-induced sleep disturbance are examined, including the main stress hormone concentrations, heart rate and cardiovascular responses to noise during sleep.
