Upcoming CPD course on Aircraft Noise:

Aircraft noise is a prominent source of media headlines and a concern for operators and decision-makers, particularly at a time of stringent planning restrictions and environmental regulations. This course will address understanding of the impact of aviation noise. It will focus on the engineering aspects of generation, propagation and mitigation of noise from aircraft powered by gas turbine engines. There will be live demonstrations with our FLIGHT-X environmental simulation program. This training is based on the AIAA book:

A Filippone: Advanced Aircraft Flight Performance, Including Environmental Performance, 2nd edition. Available from the AIAA: https://arc.aiaa.org/doi/10.2514/4.106408


Schedule (all times are London times, subject to change)

  • Each session is approximately 50 minutes + Q & A
  • There are two sessions/day, 2 days/week
  • The course is completed in 2.5 weeks (10 hours of instruction time), as shown below
  • All times are LONDON times.

Week 3   Day 5, 31 October 2023  (Class 9 & 10), 13:00 – 15:00


The course will be delivered by Prof. Antonio Filippone:

Antonio Filippone is Professor of Computational Aerodynamics at the University of Manchester, where he has now served for over twenty years. He has published extensively on aerodynamics and related subject, and is the author of 3 textbooks, 10 book chapters, 75 peer-review Journal papers, 80 international conference papers and many technical reports for industry and sponsors. Over the past 15 years he has developed, with some of his associates, the computer code FLIGHT-X, which can simulate the complete environmental emissions from modern aircraft (both acoustics and chemical species from aero-engine combustion).  Further information is found on the web has his institutional website (www.manchester.ac.uk), on Google Scholar, ResearchGate, LinkedIn. A compendium of the FLIGHT-X code is available with the most recent edition of his flight performance book, available directly from the AIAA.
