The airline industry is investing billions of dollars to adhere to the Airport Noise and Capacity Act of 1990. The Act requires airlines to reconfigure 100% of their fleets with quieter aircraft. This regulation is based in part on studies conducted around airport facilities which indicated a negative impact from noise on residential property values; The purpose of this paper is to review the issue of aircraft noise and its impact on residential property, specifically single-family homes. It discusses the use of hedonic functional forms in measuring the effect of aircraft noise around a major airport facility. The empirical analysis concludes that a low, negative impact on single-family residences can be expected as a result of aircraft noise exposure around McCarran International Airport.
