    Thanks for writing it.

    With respect to the noise in the cockpit, was this a thoughtful engineering tradeoff for some other value (say, weight) or was it just sloppy engineering by people who never had to sit in the cockpit and never really considered the noise?

    •  Unpressurized cabin, no? (0+ / 0-)

      I'd guess a lot has to do with the loudness of the source, high-pitched screaming small-diameter turbojets or low-bypass turbofans, with no acoustic treatment in the nacelles...

      Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.
