This paper reports results from two stated preference experiments valuing aircraft noise at Lyon and Manchester airports. It builds on the authors' earlier paper [1] and offers the following key developments. Firstly, re-estimation of the stated preference models based on changes in aircraft movements to changes in Leq to give a value for a unit change in Leq. Secondly the testing of a wide range of socio-economic and situational variables to identify any impact on values of noise. The first stated preference experiment identified only a small number of influential variables, which is viewed as a function of the design. Whilst the second, as expected identified rather more, though still a relatively small number. For the second stated preference experiment the Manchester and Lyon models have a high degree of similarity in that the following variables are significant in both: probability of being at home; annoyance from aircraft noise; household size; income and whether they gave a zero response to the contingent valuation question. Fewer variables were unique to one model.
