Based on the outcome of a workshop on aviation noise, this special issue on aircraft noise generation and assessment has been assembled. Invited contributions on preselected topics have been combined into one overall story line about both the aircraft noise generation and its assessment to provide an overview on the state-of-the-art capabilities in this research field (accounting both for modelling and measuring efforts). Although most relevant topics are covered, the editors do not claim that the collection of contributions is exhaustive for the multidisciplinary and vast research area dealing with aircraft noise. This issue is not restricted to current aircraft technology only, but includes low-noise technologies and novel aircraft design for subsonic and supersonic vehicles. Furthermore, an overview on measurement techniques, aeroacoustic windtunnel design, and low-noise modifications to existing windtunnels is provided. The selected paper contributions are all peer reviewed and display the status quo of experimental and numerical research activities in academia, at research institutes, and in industry.
