During discussions of identifying engiens by their sound, and more
recently a discussion on rates of climb, the subject of noise reduction
appeared.
A very straightforward question that probably donesn't have a
straightforward answer.
Do the requirements for reduce noise compromise safety at all?

Seems to me throtling back during a planes most vulnerable time can't
help but increase risk if a problem suddenly appears. But I'm not a pilot.
