The paper studies air vehicle port spatial distributions within an urban area and their noise impact on population. The aim of the paper is to provide a vision of the tradeoff between the infrastructure size of the urban air transportation system (including potential revenues) and the number of negatively affected by noise produced by the system. It was conducted by modeling a number of air vehicle port distributions for various scenarios for a simulated virtual urban area. The scenarios were

Nomenclature UAT = urban air transportation AVP = air vehicle port UAM = urban air mobility CA = catchment area r 1 = reference distance from sound source r 2 = another distance from sound source L 1 = sound level at the reference distance r 1 L 2 = sound level which is found at the distance r 2
