ESA is pleased to sponsor and help organize this year’s Aviation Noise & Emissions Symposium in Palm Springs, California from March 4-6, hosted by UC Davis. The University of California has organized the symposium since 1985 with a goal of seeking to address noise and emissions challenges in the aviation industry. The symposium unites aviation industry professionals, environmental and community advocates, policymakers, and forward-thinking technology pioneers in a common mission. Staff from ESA have been actively involved in the planning of the symposium for decades. Justin Cook, Aviation Noise Practice Leader, has been the planning chair since 2023.
