Do you know how to fly the Robinson R66 in a way that reduces noise and helps protect the future of helicopter flight?
While many pilots touch on this topic in primary flight or factory training, good aviators take advantage of opportunities to continue learning or brush up on their aircraft-specific skills. Likewise, NASA-FAA researchers work to capture new acoustic data as manufacturers attempt to decrease aircraft noise. HAI’s Fly Neighborly program, in turn, works to educate pilots about the latest noise information, teaching us how to reduce our noise footprints to create better relationships with our communities.
Join us for the Sep. 16 HAI@Work webinar, where HAI Fly Neighborly Working Group Chair Juliet Page, principal engineer with Blue Ridge Research and Consulting, will share valuable insights about how to mitigate R66 helicopter noise. Using data from an extensive NASA-FAA acoustic flight test program, she’ll highlight the noise profile of the aircraft and identify which flight conditions create the most and least noise. Juliet will also offer advice on how to operate the R66 for noise abatement while still meeting your mission requirements.
SPECIAL NOTE: This webinar can be used for FAA WINGS program credit and includes handouts on R66 noise abatement guidance.
Juliet Page is the principal engineer with Asheville, North Carolina–based Blue Ridge Research and Consulting. She has more than 30 years of experience practicing in the field of acoustics and aerospace engineering, including the areas of atmospheric propagation, rotorcraft, tiltrotors, eVTOL, aircraft sonic boom, space, and launch vehicle noise.
