Bring in da noise, bring in da VLJs

Like many communities around the country, residents around Bedford Massachusetts' Hanscom Field are unhappy with the noise from small jets.

Is this conflict only going to get worse with the advent of VLJs?

From a piece on

Noisy smaller jets taking off and landing at Hanscom Field in Bedford are always the subject of criticism by officials and residents in the four towns adjoining the airfield.

Now, though, the Massachusetts Port Authority, owner-operator of Hanscom, is active on two fronts to combat excessive noise and to measure more accurately noise levels of all aircraft using the Bedford airport.
