This paper reports on the noise pollution generated by aircrafts, the effects of the pollution on the people living around the airports. Ways to calculate the noise generated by the aircraft was also discussed so as to know the annoyance rate of the people around the airports. Finally some solutions were discussed which will help to reduce the noise of the aircrafts thereby reducing the pollution created by it.
