The City of Santa Monica hosted a free Aircraft Silencer Technology Seminar on September 22, 2012, 9:30 – 10:30 AM at the Museum of Flying. The seminar was part of the City’s continuing effort to enhance the Airport’s compatibility within the community by exploring new and emerging noise reduction technologies. The seminar was open to the community, pilots, and aviation professionals.
The presentation was given by Hans-Peter Gomolzig, Chief Executive Office of Gomolzig Flugzeug- und Maschinenbau GmbH, the German aviation manufacturer that pioneered the low noise silencer system, Quietflight. The seminar explained the concept, basic science and benefits behind Gomolzig’s Quietflight noise reduction system, which is currently in use in Europe. The session included a question and answer period.
The seminar was part of the City of Santa Monica Visioning process, a rigorous three-phase public process regarding the 227-acre Santa Monica Airport Campus aimed at providing unique opportunities for the City and the community to discuss the range of possibilities
