Aeroacoustics has evolved from being an afterthought of noise reduction measures to become an integral part of the design of aircraft and their engines. The considerable progress in reducing engine noise has led to the increasing relevance of aerodynamic noise, adding another dimension to aeroacoustics. The growth of air traffic, doubling every 15 to 25 years, compounds the challenge of reducing the total noise exposure of near airport residents. The reduction of external noise is the subject of specific performance targets in the aeronautical research programs, such as H2020-Acare in Europe and the Environmentally Responsible Aircraft (ERA) in the U.S. These targets of noise reduction, per aircraft operation, aim at enabling stricter International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) noise standards and avoiding noise restrictions imposed by authorities at major airports, in addition to the certification and local standards for external noise. Airlines value low internal noise for the comfort of passengers. The preceding factors all contribute to the increasing breadth and importance of aeroacoustics. The Special Issue addresses this broad change of topics, welcoming papers on: (i) analytical and computational aeroacoustics, (ii) experimental methods, (iii) applications to engine and aircraft design, and (iv) low-noise operating procedures. Particularly desirable are papers connecting more than one of aspects (i) to (iv), e.g., (i) computational aeroacoustics with (ii) experimental validation, simulating an (iii) aircraft application or (iv) operational procedure, possibly as a part of an on-going or recently completed research project.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Aerospace is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
