C Series Aircraft Noise Testing

The noise signature of Bombardier’s C Series aircraft has been proven to be equivalent to smaller regional aircraft such as turboprops ,and significantly less than its competitors.

  • Aircraft noise is calculated by adding the approach, flyover and lateral noise measurements.
  • Aircraft noise certification is expressed in Effective Perceived Noise in Decibels (EPNdB).

Follow Bombardier’s teams as they recorded the C Series noise footprint in Redmond, Oregon, during the fall of 2015. Enjoy the excitement behind one of the most important C Series tests for  their customers and the program and discover what makes the C Series the quietest commercial aircraft in its class in this video:
