Audio Flight Simulator Introduced

Acoustic and thermal insulation manufacturer Flight Environments believes it has solved the problem of trying to demonstrate exactly what its products do in terms of quieting corporate aircraft interiors–short of chartering two jets, one with the company’s treatment and one without. The Columbia, S.C. company introduced an audio flight simulator, an “acoustically isolated chamber” inside which people will be able to “hear what an aircraft sounds like before and after our insulation is installed, using data from actual flight recordings.” Flight Environments has provided sound-attenuation kits for the Gulfstream 200 and the BBJ, among other business jets.
