The other day, I noticed a noisy plane overhead (I live 8.5 km from an airport). I looked and low and behold it was an F28. (Canadian Airlines). It sounded just as "bad" as a DC-9 or 737-200. Will Stage III only affect planes with a certain weight, or is it an all encompassing regulation about noise ? In other words, would it be possible to have, after STAGE III deadline, an ultralight aircraft that makes more noise than a 707 not outfitted with a hushkit ? And as far as the F28 is concerned, are its engines much quieter than that of the DC-9 or 737-200 ? Is the F28 considered Stage III compliant?
