The Incidence of Noise

The Incidence of Noise FLYING is still so novel a feature of modern life that it has not yet passed the stage when the generality of people look upon it as a marvel. It is still to them a wonderful tiling that the aeroplane should fly at all. In spite of all that has been written in a propagandist spirit, that amorphous person the man in the street never thinks of the aeroplane as a possible vehicle in which he may be transported from one place to another. Flying is an adventure to him, and he infinitely prefers solid safety and comfort to adventure. But although that spirit remains at present, those of us who are in close touch with progress know that its end is in sight and that the time is approaching when to take a seat in a flying machine may no longer be a matter for trepidation and prayer. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

FLYING is still so novel a feature of modern life that it has not yet passed the stage when the generality of people look upon it as a marvel. It is still to them a wonderful tiling that the aeroplane should fly at all. In spite of all that has been written in a propagandist spirit, that amorphous person the man in the street never thinks of the aeroplane as a possible vehicle in which he may be transported from one place to another. Flying is an adventure to him, and he infinitely prefers solid safety and comfort to adventure. But although that spirit remains at present, those of us who are in close touch with progress know that its end is in sight and that the time is approaching when to take a seat in a flying machine may no longer be a matter for trepidation and prayer.
