The modern classification of noise sources of propeller-driven fixed-wing aircraft is considered. Competitive community noise levels for single- and twin-engine for the projected light propeller-driven aircraft are formulated. An approach to community noise regulation of propeller-driven fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles is proposed. Modern approaches to assessing the community noise of propeller-driven fixed-wing aircraft are considered.
