Surveys were conducted amongst residents around Manchester and Lyon Airports which aimed to value the annoyance associated with aircraft movements using stated preference techniques. The use of such methods to value aircraft annoyance is comparatively rare and the results presented here make a significant contribution to the body of empirical evidence. However, the main emphasis is the examination of a number of methodological issues. This has involved the examination of how the monetary valuations of aircraft movements vary according to the measured level of noise and whether thresholds and non-linearities in values are present. Models are also reported which test different noise measurement indices.
