These are published by the CAA on our UK Regulations pages. EU Regulations and EASA Access Guides published by EASA no longer apply in the UK. Our website and publications are being reviewed to update all references. Any references to EU law and EASA Access guides should be disregarded and where applicable the equivalent UK versions referred to instead.

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.
